I guess I haven't recovered completely from my mishap from last week.. I should have said the tender was for a reverse unit in boiler.

Thanks for info cramden on plastic 5 digit tenders. I don't have any 5 digit engines
but should have known about the plastic tenders. That tender does look like it has
a fller cap on top. I don't have any smoke in tenders either. All by design, LOL.

All flaps are nice. The best part is it was 1.99 on ebay. 9 ship.
I don't know yet if I needed more track but at that price I had to go.

That's the best argument for not worrying about rusted track, if you have patience, there's lots of it available cheap. Great price on the track mopac.

I acquired this set in the summer of this year. It is complete with a few extras; the 905 log car and 760 Highway Flasher. They are not part of the original set so either bought separately or throw-ins from the dealer. It appears as if it was run very little and some packages unopened. Price on the carton is $79.95 but I didn't pay that for it unfortunately.

Great looking set Sagas. Everything looks to be in excellent or better condition. Nice to find a set that looks to be complete, and 2 bonus items aren't bad either!

Great looking K5 set.
Kenny, I spent some time looking for your set. there is no documented set from 1954 that matches the contents of your set. There is one that is almost identical made in 1955, the 103. The 103 contains the 923 IC reefer, the 931 T&P gondola, a 940 Wabash hopper, a 938 caboose, enough track for a figure 8, a manual uncoupler, a 1 1/2 transformer and the 747 cardboard trestle set. Problem is it is documented with a 307 engine. It is possible a few were made with a 303 but w/o the 4th car.

When I got back home from my trip to the frigid east coast there was a Lionel box with three new items waiting for me. So Christmas might be early this year.
First picture is the new U36 Legacy diesel with a complimentary Santa Fe caboose. I think I have mentioned I like red cabooses. The second picture is a new Legacy SD70. I already have a UP caboose.
They need to be lubed and then programmed into the Legacy base before I run them. Already added smoke fluid to get the wicks well soaked.
There are 5 Gilbert freight cars visible in the background that are sitting in the freight yard.
