UP 806 4-8-4 Locomotive with Tender.

It is used but in very good condition and does run. As far as I know it is DC only and do not know if it is DCC ready.
It did well on the 18" curves on my test track. Whether it smokes or not I didn't test as the smoke oil container with it was empty.
More pictures coming soon.
While I know what I'd like, make me an offer. I would also be open to trades....

I actually have this one lol. It's a good runner after a few modifications but now I just use it as static display. (currently in a box right now lol)

It's analog-only as you can see the ancient horn hook-coupler on the tender in the lowest right side pic.. I don't believe any engines with horn-hooks were ever offered in DCC ...The flanges look good, so you could remove the motor and put it in front or behind another engine (DCC) as a dummy.

Mark, some of the early Atlas Master HO engines came with horn hooks, though in a little baggie in the box with the engine, along with the handrails and detail pieces.

Yes, I know. The entire analog HO industry(analog control) was horn hook for years and years. I'm saying that it wasn't DCC until after Kadee knuckles emerged on the scene (thank heavens) replacing the hooks..The loco for sale is thus analog due to it having a horn hook on the tender.
