Lionel Std. Gauge Blue Comet Set w/ 390E, 390T, 420 421 422 +
When you think of Lionel Standard Gauge Trains - this is the set that comes to mind. This is the rare "Blue Comet" Set No. 396E, the earliest version from 1930. It consists of the famed 390E cream striped Steam Locomotive, with its 390T Tender. The set pulls (3) Lionel standard gauge passenger cars - the No. 420 Pullman "Faye", the No. 421 Pullman "Westphal", and the No. 422 Observation "Tempel". These cars are correct for this set and rare, having the painted dark blue vestibules. Overall, this set is in excellent and better condition. The engine has its typical minor warp to the frame, but overall this is a nice Engine and Tender set. All original. Minor scrapes here and there as seen in the many pictures below. The passenger cars have the correct cast journals and dark blue painted vestibules. Overall, these car are almost like new. I only see a minor ding on the roof of the 420, and a couple minor paint nicks here and there. The wheels and bottom super clean. Insides look good. Again, take a look at the pictures as they show the beautiful original condition of these cars. This is a set for the high value collector. Please ask any questions. Buy with confidence. Thanks.
