I got this Dorfan train set in saturday and I have listed some photos below. It came with the track and a lionel transformer and 3 cars and a tender and of course the locomotive. The locomotive is in several pieces but I plan on repairing and the breaks are fairly clean. The locomtive does run and the cars do light up. I just wanted to save it!

Cool. Looks like some of that track went through a vinegar wash, hence no paint on the ties. I wanted to use some old Marx O-34 track on an O-27 loop as wider radius O-27 is hard to come by. The Vinegar wash cleaned up the track but also took off the paint on the ties. Repainting the ties was pretty easy and quick.

Thanks Mike......I picked up some JB Weld epoxy that is steel reinforced. I plan on repairing the locomotive shell sometime this week.
