T-Reproductions Buddy L #2020-WC Locomotive Wrecking Crane
Made by T-Reproductions back in the 1990's. Car is complete but is a littledusty and dirty, and does have a small scratch/dent in the roof as seen in the photos. It looks worse in the photo than it actually is, but it is there.I am the second owner of this pieceand do not know its original history. Nor doI have the original box.I bought this off a table at a train meetfor$1000 some years ago. It was in the condition that it is in now. I do know that back when I was into the T-Repro hobby and collecting these items that this was one of the toughest cars tofind. I am putting a flat $30 shipping rate on the crane for US Lower 48 States via UPS Groundonlywith theagreement that the buyer know that the boomwill beremoved from the crane for shippingto minimize the chance of beingdamaged. The only thingrequired to re-assemble is one swivel pin with a cotter pin on the boom and rethreading thestrings for the boom and 2 hooks. Taking the boom off is best for both the seller and the buyer. All in all it is a nice piece with some minor imperfections in the roof that someone can touch up orjust leave as is.
