This would be a great set for a young beginner where mistakes can happen without damaging a valuable item. Good play value. A complete set with a working engine and the original instructions. The boxes are fair, including the set box which is missing one of the main flaps. The engine runs forward and reverse, there is no neutral or headlight in this Scout engine. However, in 1950 Lionel actually added Magne-traction to this engine, hence the number 1120 as opposed to 1110. The motor is the type in a plastic case and one corner of the case where the rear truck lever hooks in is broken. The original transformer is included in it's box as well as the 027 track and the piece of straight track with the manual uncoupling lever. See pictures for additional details. I will also include the extra track and manual switch shown in the bottom picture. The track will need some serious cleaning for this engine to run well on such a small transformer. Contact thru my email. Cost is $65 plus shipping or I can deliver it at York in April.
