 73622605811072060 Van Hobbies CPR undec HO Kettle Valley car set 77 run

Hello. The item you are viewing was purchased new back in 1977 from Ron Craig, proprietor of The North End Hobby Supply, Seattle, WA. Today, April 2010, it is still in the "undecorated" ready-to-paint and detail version or representation of CPR or CANADIAN PACIFIC's Kettle Valley 5-car passenger set. These cars were produced in Japan by Kumata, imported via V-H (Van Hobbies), sold south of the 49th parallel courtesy PFM. Cars are Mail-Baggage, Baggage-Express, Coach, Sleeper, and Observation. It should be noted this is the earlier set: no trucks or couplers are provided, yet Kumata included window glazing, car name plaques, plus Gothic lettering gold Canadian Pacific decal sheets adequate for the fleet. NOTE: According to The Brass Model Trains Price & Data Guide, Vol.2, 2009 edition the decals provided will not fit above the window line with this particular run. It does not elaborate wherein the mistake lies but does list that later produced sets do accommodate the decal height. I'll let you decide. These cars are gorgeous enough to be appropriate for other applications. CONDITION: There are no dents nor dings present anywhere on models. Tarnish is minimal. General appearance of models suggest C-8 (Like New). Box, plastic car liners, and foam are original and still in excellent condition structurally. Box exterior does show mars and rubbing from moving about within a dishpak from transit and/or infrequent viewing visits. SHIPPING: Car weights plus box it came in weigh 4.05 lbs. With protective packaging and outer carton the postal rate will likely approximate 5 lbs. I offer UPS and USPS. I will also combine "wins" of any 7-day bid cycle to save you unnecessary shipping expense. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~USA: 48 states~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ USPS Priority: usually reliable within suggested 2-3 day time frame though certain destinations may take longer. I don't suggest USPS Flat Rate carton prices as normal USPS Priority has a tendency to be the better value. USPS Express: much faster delivery timeframe and insurance included in the rate. UPS Ground: item can be tracked enroute, valuation up to $100 included in rate, reliable service. Rate(s) may be higher for Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~CANADA/INTERNATIONAL~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ USPS First Class Mail International will NOT apply as item exceeds 4-lb weight limit; USPS Priority Mail International: you will get it in your lifetime, item can be insured. USPS Express Mail International: faster delivery schedule, insurance usually included in rate; only choice available if destination is Mexico. Should model sell please ensure I receive payment by 10th calendar day after auction close and receipt of invoice OR if there are other items offered on my site you find of interest I will allow wait time of 2 consecutive 7-day auction cycles so you can save on shipping expense. I understand ebay has introduced a robo-like prompter that requests payments daily. I cannot control that appartus so I suggest you ignore that or email my ebay message site should you have any concerns. Thank you for taking time to read this ad and for looking.
