The Weaver O Scale Union Pacific FEF 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive is in need or repair/refurbishment and also an accompanying tender with the required electronics in order for the locomotive to operate. As seen in the pictures provided, from a distance this O scale brass locomotive appears to have been weathered, but up close you can see that what appeared as weathering most likely is the result of overfilling the smoke chamber of the locomotive and having it run over the front section of the boiler front causing it to stain the gray painted surface. As indicated above, this locomotive is in need of a tender which will allow it to be operated.I did bench test the locomotive and the only result was that the marker lights and mars lights did work, but the locomotive would not move. A suitable Weaver tender with a 4-pronged wiring harness would most likely be needed. Upon inspection of the drive wheels, front & rear trailing trucks, and pick-up rollers, there is very little wheel wear. Even with the missing tender and smoke-fluid stained boiler front, I believe this locomotive in the right hands could be resurrected to become a running engine. This is a very large and heavy steam locomotive.
