The track lock on and the transformer cord were all factory wrapped. I removed the transformer cord and bench tested the engine.
It does run forward and reverse and should be serviced. It comes with 6 straight section and 16 curved section of track in excellent condition. I think it may have be ran at some point, but not with the original transformer and track lock on and very little running time. I have seen the engine listed several times as a brass KTM, but never a complete boxed set.The item "KATSUMI/KTM AC BOXCAB ENGINE EB-501 4 WHEEL METAL 8 1/2 INCHES LENGTH BOXED SET" is in sale since Tuesday, July 16, 2019.
