While the add-on accessories above (marked with an *-asterisk) are entry level components, what is special here is that they are unassembled kits, in their original plastic bags; and include the assembly instruction sheets.

The diesel and rolling stock all have never been run and are in factory fresh/Mint condition.

The diesel features dual motors, eight-wheel drive, interior lighting, metal wheels, handrails and chassis, and electronic forward-neutral-reverse.  

The rolling stock features metal wheels and operating knuckle couplers at one end. The coal dump car remotely dumps into a track side bin (included). The searchlight car has an operating light. The derrick car features a swiveling derrick and hook which cranks up and down.

The set box has scuffs and nicks commensurate with age. One of the box corners has been repaired with clear tape.
