When I tested this I thought there was a problem, but it was easily fixed. The junction of the wire from power source to winding and lights was not insulated and arcing to the structure. A bit of shrink tubing did the trick. Works like new and has two clean 696 track trips. I try and focus on postwar to mid 1950's 3-digit accessories. My research indicates that this is a 759, sold in a 23763 box, so it basically fits that requirement.

Looks like a nice one.

There was a problem but you found it and fixed it. Good job.

This is how I store my AF steamers and cars. An Atlantic or a
Pacific fit with tenders attached. Northerns have to have tender
detached. They cost $3.00 including tax and I get them at a local baseball card shop. They stack great. I have 13 of them. I have an inventory list and each item has the number of the box item is in. Each box is numbered. It does make finding something easier.

Nice looking N.P. cars mopac. The only extra car Dad bought for our trains was a 947 N.P. I always liked this car. Like your 759 shaker281, a 5 digit box puts it at a 1957 production. Good job getting it straightened out.

Good job on the flatcar load. Did the trucks come that way or did you repaint them?

That is exactly the way that they came. I did put a wooden plank deck on the flat car. No chains yet...
