I forgot that too. But they must have made a special trip for me.
I got 2 packages. I have seen them deliver packages on sunday.
The other package is an O scale passenger car I ordered. My new
to me 282 came. I am ok with it. It was only 24.50 plus shipping.
In the pics it was all assembled, I got a box of pieces. LOL. Part
of the problem was the way it was packed. This guy could give a seminar on how NOT to pack a steam engine. First he starts with a flimsy shoe box. Then he wraps the loco with one sheet of newspaper and puts it in the shoe box and tapes the lid on. There
was about 3 or 4 inches of nothing between sides. Must have been a rough trip. A couple of pieces of plastic from screw holes was in there also. Front pilot assembly came off. So of coarse cross heads were loose. Front body mount screws were out. And
at first I could not find the coal pusher from tender. It was up
inside the boiler shell. One of the white wheel insulators is chipped and rim is loose from insulator. There was no white pieces of white plastic in there so maybe I missed it in the pics. I
usually look for that. And there was some screws loose in the box. Actually I think all the parts are there. Glad I bought some JB Weld. Cab numbers and tender graphics are nice. Boiler is nice.
Its cheap enough to be a parts engine but I think I will make it a runner. I like it. Its a project. The shoe box was the mailing box.
I don't think it was in pieces when the guy mailed it. He had a note in the box telling me he had taped the drawbar screw to top of tender.
It needs a bath.
Smoke tube is missing. I have some.
