Have tested the power car and it ran fine, but I do not think that this set has had much if any use as there is still elastic bands around the track sections and the wires of the power controller do not look like they have been attached to a plug at any time, so some running in may be required. Looks to be in excellent condition and complete.
Box looks to be in good overall condition, just a little sun fade at one end.
