For auction is a Williams Trains Brass USRA 2-8-2 Mikado Steam Locomotive and Tender from the Crown Classic Brass series of 1990-3 Rail.  Williams Trains offered brass classics during their early production years from 1984 thru 1995; this is one of the 3 Rail 1990 PRR brass models. It is not a heavily detailed engine, but is an accurate replication of the USRA steamers that were produced during WW1 and after for most major USA railroads by the ALCO and Baldwin Companies. 

I was not able to fully test this scale type engine. I think they operate better on a larger radius track which I do not have due to the length of the frame and the articulation of the valve gear.  Operation on 0-31 puts a strain on the drive rods and eccentric crank, IMHO.

  A bench test found it to be operating  forward and reverse with lights operating on the engine and tender.  These functions are controlled by a circuit board in the tender and there may one in the engine as well.  There is a 'tether' as shown, which enables a connection to synchronize the motor timing with the smoke unit which was also not tested.  The motor has a flywheel for smooth performance with electronic reverse, and lock-out switches for direction and smoke. [I did not test these features]. There is a "smoke unit" on-off switch under the cab, (part of the engine frame) which controls the smoke element. The frame is 'sprung' and moves smoothly on the wheelset, which is a nice touch.

 The engine and tender appear new and have been on display; it has NO 'original box' or instructions.  There is an MTH Premier steamer long box which will be used for shipping [not shown].  The engine and tender are brass and have moderate weight. There are traction tires on the front & rear drivers.  Brass models are mostly collected by those who love fine detailing, and many are used for conservative operation by collectors who run their engines and keep them in shape, This set should have lubrication, if operated. [Note: there is a missing decorative brake shoe on the RR Driver.]

The PRR Mikado 2-8-2 Steamer and Tender is sold AS IS as SEEN with NO RETURNS.  If there is something you would like to know, please use the 'ask seller a question' function and I will respond as soon  as I can be at a computer.  The items will be insured at no additional cost to the winner, if shipped within the USA.  Shipment is by USPS PRIORITY MAIL and usually leaves my location within 24 hours of receipt of payment, if possible.  If more views are needed, I will try and get additional photos; I will NOT disassemble the loco nor the tender to show the working parts.

Payment is by PAYPAL ONLY and it is shipped thru the eBay system to insure that it reaches your location properly with tracking, etc.  Thanks for stopping-in and please check the other items from this collection.  Rich H. Phila PA.
