Hey guys. I posted in another thread about my recent "York find". Lionel set #21786. I have been searching for this set for 15 years at a reasonable price. I finally found it and it is NIB. All that was missing was the shrink wrap and the seller accepted my first offer. It was my lucky day.
I enjoy collecting the Lionel premium sets. The 15" cars in this set do not bother me. I will run them along side my double stacks and 21" Union Pacific and Amtrak cars. I also included a pic of the 2001 TMCC F3 next to my 2018 Legacy model. I think the 2001 version looks pretty good compared to the latest offering.
Here are some pics and a video. This is my first video so please understand if it does not post properly.
I got it home yesterday, unpackaged and inspected everything, lubed it up and put it on the rails.
