Thanks for the comeback.
The engine is a greenish/gray color, with red trim around the doors, winodws, and roof, cast iron and very heavy, the frame and the pilots are black. The engine has "New York Central Lines and 3238 NYC and HR. written on the sides. On the front right hand side it has overlapping V's and Germany under the V's. It has one head light and on the middle of the collector/pickup it as ingraved WW orVV Germny D.R.P. a PATENT APPLIED FOR
The cars are lettered "New York Central Lines on top/sides above windows, Rockford (Pullman Car), and Belvidere,(Observation Car). They are four wheel cars. On the bottoms of the cars they have the WW symbols with Geramany underneath the symbol. It has no reverse but has a hole in the engine body casting for what I believe could me a reverse rod, but I don't believe this model had reverse originally.
The cas are green lithiographed with gold trim, black frames, and dark brown roofs.
The set looks to be all original and runs like a bear but the headlight seems to be dim,(possibly a bad ground?).
Hope this helps, I will try to get pictures posted.
