Lionel 11713 Santa Fe Ltd Set (Mint) - SOLD
Mfg #: Lionel 6-11713
2014 Greenburg Guide Price: $480.00 (Mint)
This Santa Fe Limited set was manufactured by Lionel in 1990. It was one of the final sets of the series of "Limited Edition - Collector Series" sets manufactured by Lionel from 1979 thru 1992. These were the sets that gained notoriety as being the ones that came in the bright, solid color set boxes. The set is headed by a Santa Fe Dash 8 40B diesel that features dual Pullmor motors, 8 wheel drive, magne-traction, die cast metal wheels and trucks, diesel horn, headlights, illuminated number boards, traditional "e-unit" (forward-neutral-reverse), and excellently detailed cab & handrails. It was Lionel's first of the series of "simple" dual-motored Dash 8 diesels (prior to the introduction of the computerized diesels of the present day). It is "simply" a brute, nothing complicated, and capable of pulling 40-50 modern era freight cars.
The set is comprised of:
Each car features all metal sprung trucks with metal wheels & axles and operating magnetic knuckle couplers at both ends. The diesel and all the rolling stock are in "factory fresh" condition (i.e. "Mint", "brand new", "never been on the tracks or displayed"). The solid dark-blue outer box cover is in like new condition, with a few scuffs, commensurate with its 24-year age, being the only flaws of any significance.
Note: Lionel 18212 Santa Fe Dash 8-40B Dummy was mfg'd in 1993 and is also available for sale on this site. Click here for details.
