Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
That's a great set, I know several people who would be green with envy over it.
Thanks for post photo's & showing it to us.

Happy Rails!
Dave

my father handed this train down to me around 15yrs ago. he bought from a gentleman at a meet in york pa in 1980. he had five custom painted military trains from different countries. my father has always regretted not buying all of them. i've done alot of internet searching and have never found anything like this one. or any kind of info on the guy that built and painted them. to my knowledge when i took them out of the box for pics is only the 2nd time they have been out in 37yrs. never been put on a track

Seems to me that is time to lube that puppy up and get her on the track.
She's spent enough time as a shelf queen.
Listen to her wheels goin' clickety clack as she goes roundy round
as you get off into the O zone....

just sayin'....
