MTH / Ives Standard Gauge Circus Train Set consisting ofLoco, Tender,6 Cars, Tents & Boxes. I am thinning out my collection for the first time ever and have the first 2 items listed today. I have been a TCA member since 1977 and haveseldom sold anythingdirectlyand neveron so bear with me. This sale is for theLoco ("traditional" motor)tender, cars, tents and boxesas shown in the pictures below.Theset was purchased by me in the 80's or 90's - I don't remember exactly when but it was when it first came out. The engine has never been run, the set has never been displayed- the whole set has been stored in their original boxes since being purchased so it is pretty much "like new" except for some very minor issues likethe box the loco & tender comes in has a slightly rumpled corner (see photos) andone of the animal's tails (tiger) is broken (see photo, broken piece shown also).I couldn't show all the packaging but each train pieces comes in a fitted styrofoam insert and printed/labled box. The 6 cars come in a corregated carboard master carton but the loco & tender doesnot. The tent comes in a flat carboard box that is inside the master carton for the cars.The set is beingoffered "as-pictured" /"as-is" with a low reserve.There are no returns so please be sure you are satisfied with the item before offerding. If you have anyquestions, I'm happy to answer them.Will ship & insure by UPS ground to USA locations only. No international shipping.The set is being shipped in 2 packages, one quite heavy & largeso the shipping estimate is high - I'll will ship the very best UPS ground rate available. Thanks and good luck!
