GREAT DEAL on Lionel 6-11722

Check Out this Fantastic Deal!

Lionel 6-11722 Girls Train Set/Box

In Stock and Ready to Ship!

Here is a Lionel 11722 Girls Train Set from 1991. This set is a remake of the classic Lionel Girls' Set from 1957-58. This set includes a Die-cast Locomotive & Tender, two Box cars, a Gondola, a Hopper and a Caboose. It comes with track, an AC Transformer, lockon, and wires.

Run a fair bit, this set has a few scratches on the locomotive and tender bodies. The locomotive has a few small chips in the paint around the steam chests and cattle guard. The cattle guard also has a small crack where it attaches to the boiler frame. The lettering on the tender is fading on one side. The freight cars are in good shape with very few minimal scratches on the bodies. There are a couple small spots of rust on the locomotive's trailing truck. The track shows just a few small signs of use with a few scratches on the rails and bases; no rust. The original box is included. This item has been quick tested by our repair department and is fully functional. Overall condition is Very Good+.

The Trainz SKU for this item is 3382760.
