I'm looking for a 3 rail MTH Premier Santa Fe 2900 class northern, preferably with dead electronics and/or mechanical damage (i.e. stripped worm gear, bad motor, etc). I'm planning on doing some upgrades/modifications so a non running locomotive is fine for what I'm doing. I'd prefer one in like new condition cosmetically. I'm looking for the following item numbers:

PS1:

20-3014-1 (road number 2912)

20-3015-1 (road number 2921)

PS2:

20-3080-1 (road number 2913)

20-3317-1 (road number 2919)

Email is in profile. Thanks.

I agree with the previous poster.  I checked the bay today and there are several a $649.  This does not seem too out of line since I paid about $500 for my PS1 engine several years ago and they are not making any steam right now.  I paid a lot more for my PS3 version but that is a different story

Not out of line for crazy auction site prices, high for person to person. Ebay prices are higher due to seller fees. I've never paid more than $350 or so for a Premier PS1 4-8-4 person to person, even in the past year.

Well don't delete. Guy I purchased the locomotive from was on his way to the post office this morning to ship it. Locomotive was in the trunk of his car. He was rear ended by a box truck. His car and the locomotive were severely damaged. He's ok, but I'll have to find another ATSF Northern.

Long story short I'm still looking.

I bought an engine for the guts inside. I ended up getting them from MTH anyways. So I have this engine that is one of the unpainted samples. I have to go see what it is as I forgot!

Oops, not a Northern at all. No board. Tender and (unpainted/ stripped) shell in box

I'll get pics and show them to you for ID if you are interested. I was going to send it to the Harmon shops if he wanted it.

It is the front chassis in this pic and the rest is in the box

Thanks Joe!…the OP is a good buddy of mine,…..we’re all looking for a descent priced Northern for him, at some point we’ll shake one loose for him,….😉

Somehow you get a Niagara out of my WTB thread. It figures. 😉

For anyone else I'm still looking for a Premier Santa Fe Northern. So let me know if you have one of the items in the first post you're willing to part with. 😁
