USA Trains R22350 EMD F3A Locomotive #5594 of the D&RGW.
GOOD USED CONDITION.
The D&RGW version was one of the first offered by USA Trains and have long been discontinued.
Purchased used, for my private collection in 2013, I unboxed it only to test to see if it operated fully. Everything seemed to function, however I did not test the smoke unit.
All the wheels and the pick-up skates do show some wear, but that is normal for a locomotive that has been run. The wear is not in any way excessive or has any plating been worn off (a common sight on locomotives that have been run hundreds of hours). This appears to have been run only indoors, and indeed I only tested it indoors.
Standard features of this type of locomotive include:
* 1:29 Scale Model
* Dual powered trucks on both units
* Dual smoking stacks on both units
* Red/green directional marker lights
* Real metal screens on roof and side
* Lighted number boards
* Quality Graphics
One of the only problem areas on the locomotive that I can see, and it is purely cosmetic, is the nose door. It does not pivot the way it should, but I do not see any way to fix it. Both hinge pins are present, but without taking the body off, I cannot tell if there are any hinges inside for the hinge pins to pivot in. That I will leave up to the future owner.
Please also note that the box this came in may not be its original box, since a former owner tore off the end flap that provided the individual model number and road name. Otherwise the box is in good shape for its age.
