    Good Morning,

    I have two sets of the Frisco HO Scale Proto 2000 Black/Yellow paint scheme FA/FB-1 units. These have been in storage for a couple of years, and I would like to pass them along for good use by another Frisco fan. I think one (one of the B units) has a bad DCC decoder. They all had DCC installed (one may also have sound).

    They need some TLC, as they have a few broken grab irons, and probably gone through for cleaning and lubrication.

    They are the 5200 and 5215 road numbers. The B units might be 53XX.

    Will ship in original boxes. PM me if interested

    PRICE: $30 plus actual shipping (for all 4 together).

    Will mark as sold when/if I have a taker.

    -Bob T.

    I must be senile, I can't figure out how to PM you. Are these HO and do you have any sort of photo? I know a guy................he says he will take them if they are HO.

    Hey Don,

    I will post photos here tonight after work. They are indeed HO scale. I will mark them sold, and if you change your mind, relist them.

    PM Me the particulars of where to send the Paypal when you get shipping calculated. I won't bring them in the house when they get here because it will cause discontent with my steam roster. I'll have my friend pick them up from the garage. You'll also need my address.

    Here you go, Don. I am sorry to report that the backward-facing horns are broken off, but are present. You can see that there are a few places where the side grab irons are split near the joints.

    Let me know if you still want them. My guess is that shipping will be about $15.

    Don, didn't the FA/FB exhaust qualify them as honorary steam locos? Doug

    That was a steal.
