We have never fired it up but it appears complete in all mechanical ways to function, as it should. The base is stamped/embossed with the logo LINEMAR TOYS JAPAN LINEMAR CO. Surface Condition: Very Good to Excellent, little surface wear and few scratches. The battery compartment is pristine too.
There is soot under the boiler indicating past use. A small spot of blue paint near the engine on the base, appears to have been added to mask a chip in the surface enamel.
Mechanical Condition: All moving parts are in tact. The tower light does not function as the inside bulb wire has detached (but can be fixed). The battery compartment lid hinge has detached (can also be repaired). There is no mini Sterno fuel can included which is required to heat the water in the boiler that powers the engine mechanism.

The attachable side collection receptacle for the condensation run off line is the only item missing.
