Well, I'm in no way an expert, 'specially with the foreign stuff, but if they're in good shape, I'd have to say sounds like a fair price :dunno:

It is the upper end of fair, if the loco and cars are not worn and in very good condition. I bought a set last year and enjoy it tremendously.

You did good for $125...mine is the brown version. They are called "Stainz" locomotives and ran on a meter gauge line until they were replaced by a highway in 1957. The water tank rests between the drivers and the fuel bunkers to either side of the boiler. These models run like a watch, I'm thrilled with mine, one of the best yard sale finds I've ever made..

Usually the carton will indicate whether it has those features... Only the newer ones have both sound and smoke, but alot of the older ones had a smoke unit fitted.

I don't think this one does have either, but you will have to check when you get it. Also, retrofitting a smoke unit is pretty easy and costs about $20 or so.
