HO Scale Brass PFM Fujiyama Northern Pacific A-3 4-8-4 Northern WOW!!!

849.00

This is the HO Scale Brass PFM Fujiyama Northern Pacific A-3 4-8-4 Northern, Custom Painted, with the Azure Blue boiler jacketing and cylinder sides. This is the first run from 1972 with original box and the model was painted in 1972 or 1973. The old foam is gone and new bubble wrap will be provided. The model was painted right after is was imported. No lube. Dry as a bone. We’re listing this one as new old stock because there are no indications it was ever operated on a layout. The wheels are really clean, just as the painter left them when he finished his work here. Track tested runs as intended but because the model has been sitting for so long it really does need to have the motor bearings, gearbox, and journals oiled lightly in order to have it run like a dream. The original owner had it stored in the box and thank goodness it was dry or the oil might have migrated and ruined the paint job. REALLY nice paint work here. NO foam damage anywhere. All the wheels have white tires painted on. That alone adds hundreds of dollars to a custom paint job. Inside of the bell is even painted bright red. The only flaw we can see is the vertical handrail behind the cab on the engineer’s side broke loose at the bottom. We see a lot of models and this is certainly one that has that WOW!!! factor going for it, from front to rear, and top to bottom. Great model made in Japan, designed and built to be operated, with a terrific paint job and the original box. Priced accordingly because MOST of the Fujiyama A3s that we have run across in the last 10 years are heavily foam damaged, well-used, and/or poorly painted. Those models typically sell for $400-$650 even with all of the problems. But there’s none of that here. This model is stellar. Price INCLUDES USPS Priority Mail FULLY Insured Shipping with Signature Confirmation to the lower 48 States. If you have any questions please drop me a line or give me a call. Thanks for looking today. Cheers!
