1928 Lionel 408E Passenger Set w Boxes and 409E Set Box
I have been collecting standard gauge for 30 years, and this also is about the closest to a like-new, original 408 set that I have seen. I think that my cars may be better, but this loco is better. And there is a set box (though well taped). This was the top-of-the-line Lionel passenger set in 1928. It cost a month's pay for a working man.

This set is also in nearly perfect condition because it sat in its original boxes for much of the last 77 years.

This set includes:
  409E   Original Set Box  
  408E   Twin-motor Loco    Orig. Box
419 Combine   Orig. Box
418 Parlor Car   Orig. Box
431 Dining Car   Orig. Box
490 Observation   Orig. Box

The motors have the Black Lionel replacement drive wheels from the 1940's. You see this fairly often.
