This is the HO Scale Brass PFM Fujiyama Northern Pacific Class A-5 4-8-4 Northern Custom Painted. 33 images included. This is the first run from 1965 with original PURPLE BOX. 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. Cradle tested runs as intended but the brass drawbar, spring, screw and the drawbar pin are oxidized and need to be cleaned before the model can be track operated. It’s 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 there is a small smidge and a tiny paint chip on the engineer’s side of the tender just above the 2nd axle jounal from the rear of the tender. We took several pictures to show this very minor flaw. We see a lot of older 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—though the box and label are faded and weathered. Priced accordingly because MOST of the Fujiyama A5s 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!
