Joustra, France - Scale 0 - Battery-operated Electric railcar "La Flèche d'argent" made of tin, No.810, 1980s
Aesthetic condition: very good / Mechanical condition: it works / including original box.
Offered from 1953 in a very nice box which has a richly lithographed illustration showing that this is a high-end futuristic-looking railcar.
This railcar evokes the real ‘Budd’ railcars and the stainless steel trains of the Paris suburbs.
The train is complete and in perfect working and aesthetic condition, the box is slightly dulled from age, see photos for description (40 years).
Comes with 6 straight and 6 curved tracks which form into a large oval.
With reverse and lighting button.
The three cars are connected by 2 bellows.
The two battery compartments are in perfect condition with no corrosion.
The train is electrically powered with a flat 4.5 volt battery, placed directly in the engine compartment.
A simple round 3.5 volt battery is enough to light the light bulb in the roof headlight.
In short, this is a beautiful prestigious railcar.
