From Me:
I've got this train set out of the box and on my tracks.
The locomotive has truck mounted horn-hook couplers, partly to honour the original train set and because I couldn't be bothered, I've left them. This is the only PC locomotive I've left with horn-hook couplers. I don't use it much, but I like it, it's a strong loco.
The cars are all in their original condition, with truck mounted horn-hook couplers. As is the caboose.
This set comes with brass track, a figure 8 layout. I'll sell you the track for a good price.
This train set sold in the Loblaws chain of grocery stores for $35CAD, from 1992 November till they were out of stock.
