    Look REAL close folks. I swear it is at least missing the rear truck and I'm tempted to say it's just a shell. If I actually cared (I've seen high priced junk from several iterations of ebay sellers from Stockton CA containing "costa" in the name over the years) I'd email the seller and ask them to take it out of the box. And bonus points for blanking out the price tag. Wouldn't want a potential buyer knowing what these really cost. But I'm trying to limit drama in my life at this time. But honestly. New? Yeah right. It might have been new 20+ years ago. It's not new. It's not new old stock. It's old in a box that may or may have not been opened. And vintage only works with wine I'm sorry. What ebay REALLY needs it to give us smilies to click on so I can put about 10 LMAO smilies on that listing. That would be a great addition and hopefully help those folks not as knowledgeable of N scale to keep from getting scammed by these folks.

    Besides being dated it probably goes back to the era of split gears and if not split yet soon will be and then the buyer will listen to the sound of a racing motor and no movement.
