So I picked up this set about a year ago not knowing much about it other than the family I bought it from ran it around their Christmas tree for a looong time. Box says it’s a 1115, and since the only cataloged set I can find for that number is a scout set I would assume it’s a promotional item. There’s space for another car in it but I don’t see any markings left in the box like a car normally leaves, like small indents from the wheels or other parts. It doesn’t have a lid either so I do not know if there might have been a master list inside it to tell me what might be missing if anything. Any backstory on this Alabama-found oddity? Any idea what it might be worth?
That empty spot may have been for the 027 track. That angled corner might be perfect for holding curved sections snuggly.
I agree, most likely for the O27 track. A set with a transformer included would have also had some track, possibly just a full circle no straights.
It did have track to the side there, I took it out because it was damaging the box.
According to Greenberg's guide to uncatalogued sets outfit 1115 was sold by general retailers unknown which one,but was aimed at the Canadian market...there is a pic of the set on page 87...you are missing a 6045 tank car....good find.....joe
Interesting. Any idea what it might be worth if I snagged the tank car or just not worth the effort?
Listed as 1960 and valued at $275-575...But note, my book is way out of date....the tank car is most likely a common item...so I think it's worth the effort....cheers...joe
