  • This unit is quite unique and unusual
  • It is the rarest variation made in 1959 only with a thick nose decal (one of three variations of the nose decals used on 2383's)
  • Even more unusual is the fact that the powered unit has an orange mold with a raised ladder leading up to the engineer's and fireman's doors as pictured. (The non-powered unit has the normal grey mold with flush ladders as pictured
  • We magnified the view of the paint rub on the left rear corner of the powered unit (showing the orange mold) as well as magnified views of the rubs on the nose and on the raised ladders
  • Also magnified is the rub on the non-powered unit on the corner above the fireman's window, on the rain gutters and a retouch of the paint forward of the fireman's door
  • This unit has one of the better pairs of bodies found these days, and is totally unscratched
  • we wonder if most of these rubs occured the factory< and decided to grade it Like New (C8) to properly describe oveall appeasrance
  • We try to describe every imperfection as best we can so you know exactly what your are getting - don't let our attention to detail diminish the overall looks of this 2383!
  • We note that Don Shaw, founder of the Train Station had all the 2383 variations in new, mint unrun conditis, but was never able to find any wihout marks on the bodies
  • Includes original instructions.
