Ives Railway Lines 3254 Model Passenger Train Set
2 #135 Pullman Cars #136 Observation Car with Box & Instructions
This is a vintage 1930s Ives Railway Lines train set. The original box measures 16 1/2" x 14 1/2"4 1/2" and is in rough condition. The top lid is missing most of 2 side panels and there is general wear to the remaining lid and sides. The box bottom is fairly complete with dividers. There is some tears on the edges. The set includes the #3254 engine and 2 - #135 Pullman cars and 1 - #136 Pullman Observation car all in light brown. They are all in good condition with minor wear. I did not track test it but the engine is running when tested with a transformer. The bell for the engine needs to be reattached. It also comes with a few extra accessories including a few pieces of track but not enough to set up. The instruction sheet is in good condition with light wear but is otherwise solid and clean.
A great addition to your Vintage Model Railroad Collection.

Who We Are: We are long time 40+ year collectors that buy and sell almost anything that is vintage and interesting. My wife has been selling under the user name 'tink642' for the last year and over 8 years total. We love flea markets, estate sales, garage sales and specialize in vintage toys from our childhood. We have been selling on for over 14 years and have had some great experiences. We take pride in offering some fantastic vintage collectable items and almost always at just a $9.99 starting offer regardless of our investment or value. The buyer decides what it's worth. No one likes paying taxes or shipping costs but it is a necessary part of the total costs on your order. Because we run true sale sales and there is no way to add costs to the item's price, the costs must be added to the winning offers. All of our shipping charges are clearly stated and will be the exact amount you will be invoiced so there are never any surprises. Starting in Recently in their infinite wisdom has starting charging commission fees on the shipping charges in addition to the selling price. When questioned in the town meeting how we will recoup these charges they stated "just charge more to the customer" while recommending keeping the shipping charges low! We have never made money on shipping and are now forced to increase our handling charges to offset the new fees. Please use the postage calculator so that you know exacting what the costs are prior to offerding. Remember that the further you are from the East Coast (zone 1) the higher the shipping charges will be. There are no hidden fees. Some items that are fragile will have mandatory insurance added. Please keep this in mind when you review your shipping charges and this is also the reason we had to make the hard decision to discontinue all international sales. We encourage the buyers to leave response to let is know that they have received their item and they are satisfied but as response is tied into the DSRs on our seller account, please only leave high response or contact us if there is a problem. If there is any issue with your purchase and we will be happy to work things out.
CONFIRMATION: You will receive an e-mail invoice after the sale closes for the total amount due with any shipping options. Your postage will be based on your registered zip code or country based on the weight and size of your package using the shipping calculator. Your order will be shipped to your registered Pay Pal address.
POSTAGE & SHIPPING: NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING! The USPS shipping rates, handling & insurance are clearly stated in the ad and this is the exact amount you will be charged. No surprises. All shipments come with tracking and are uploaded by Pay Pal the day the your postage is confirmed. Shipping costs are based on the winning buyers shipping address and the weight and size of your package using the postage calculator. We ship from zone 1 (New York) ~ the greater the distance or the higher your zone number (West Coast is zone 8) the higher the shipping charges. Note: There is a 2.00 handling charge for all orders to offset fees only. Save $$$ on shipping for multiple purchases! We generally ship on Monday and only once a week so all payments received by Sunday PM will ship the very next Monday. Payment received later than Sunday night will not ship until the following Monday (5 days or less).
PAYMENT: Payment due within 7 days of sale close. NY Residents must add 8% sales tax. Have Fun offerding!
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Due to the new commission changes, Pay Pal only recognizing shipping with tracking numbers and the 6050W regulations it has made it unprofitable to ship internationally due to the high shipping costs and commission fees. The fees for international shipping averages between $3.00 and $6.00 on top of the Priority shipping costs plus Pay Pal charges an extra 1% on all international transactions. If your country does not show on the shipping charges DO NOT offer! Those items are not available for international and your offers will be cancelled. The following applies only to those items that show international shipping:
- Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.
- Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying.”
While most items are no longer available for international shipping recommends that all international sales be shipped Priority International insured with tracking. Rates have nearly doubled in the last year. We can no longer offer 1st class shipping for this reason.
