I purchased the locomotive at a bargain price as part of an estate sale. Unfortunately the locomotive had been poorly treated, with numerous dents in the skyline casing, and a broken and bent pilot. The locomotive also had a very poor paint job that would have to go! The tender was in relatively good shape other than the paint job and a few loose solder joints on some of the hand railings.
Here are a few pictures of the locomotive in its original condition:
