This is a pair of USED (with minor cosmetic issues) HO Scale Brass Overland Models Union Pacific Railroad Gas Turbine locomotives. Includes the Overland Models OMI 1876 UP Standard Turbine #57 with the special Plated Propane Tender and also includes the Overland Models OMI 5195 UP #50 Double Ended Gas Turbine. Models are SOLD AS-IS AS-DESCRIBED NO RETURNS ALL SALES FINAL. Here’s the deal… Both models are USED and custom painted. Wheels are fairly clean too. They are used; not abused. Paint on both models is amateur custom paint, mostly well done, but there are some paint chips too, and signs of handling with a somewhat uneven finish overall. Some spots are glossier than others. OMI 1876 in particular has some uneven spots and a bit of grime from handling located center of the sides. Nose has one front number board missing, with the other appearing to be a piece of plastic filed to fit into the opening. The plated Propane Tender was decaled without the decals being sealed. Likely possible to settle down those a bit better with some Solvaset or MicroSol but that is UP TO THE BUYER to do. Model runs well and is VERY quiet, has the tank drive system that Ajin was using at the time this model was imported. Only 70 of these were made in 1985. The drive performs very well, has DOUBLE Mashima can motors with DOUBLE vertical gear boxes within the fuel tank area. Each motor has a single large brass flywheel for each side of the drive. The OMI 5195 was one of 100 made in March 1991 and has a more modern drive system with double can motors above floor with a small brass flywheels on each motor. It’s in a similar condition to the Propane Turbine but also has minor paint issues and mostly, it’s the clear finish that has worn through, a little too glossy here and there. This model runs as intended too, very smooth, and has the more modern above-floor drive system. With a little paint touch-up, a new clear coat, and perhaps some weathering, both of these models could be brought up a notch or two, to look pretty nice again. Both boxes are foams are original and included. So too are the original spare parts packages that came with each model. Models are exactly as shown. We track tested them and they do run as intended, smooth but, and exhibit just a bit of gear noise while running. Kadee couplers are installed, MV lenses installed, no lighting, these are currently straight 12vdc locomotives. Only minor wheel wear. Our price always INCLUDES a supreme packing job of both the model inside of its box AND the shipping box too, along with USPS Priority Mail WITH FULL INSURANCE COVERAGE along with signature tracking and delivery confirmation to the lower 48 States. Other destinations will be extra and we can advise that cost after your purchase at the time we prepare your package for shipping. If you have any questions please drop us a line or give us a call. Again, this set of two (2) models is being SOLD AS-IS AS-DESCRIBED NO RETURNS ALL SALES FINAL. They do have a few cosmetic issues as noted but mostly, these are very nice models that simply need a new home and a bit of TLC. Thanks for looking today. Cheers!
