We get many gracious donations of old trains for our modular group, but this has to be one of the best. When modular group member, Jerry (jec), walked though the door with this box, I had to sit down.........literally, my knees were weak. I recognized the box from the 1957-58 Super O era, and, it was!
When I saw the set box number, 2503, I knew it would be 1958 (I received 2507 from Santa that year).
Here is me opening it up.
Look at that! An original boatload with authentic harnesses! The track is also in decent shape.
Note: the Wawa coffee is 2022.....
I went home and pulled out my 58 catalog.
We are going to have a great time running this 1958 gem!
