It has not been tested with fuel/steam but appears to be in good. Please see my condition notes at bottom for info on condition of the electrics. All of the moving parts including the light mechanism are working as they should.The light mechanism is very cool part of this toy and it moves back and forth inside the reactor housing so the red lights appear to light up alternately on each side. This toy includes the tin metal fuel pan that slides into the reactor as a heat source. Item is in very nice cosmetic condition with typical wear and paint loss/light rust around the heating and battery area.
Battery wire is disconnected and there is a flexible leather "washer" that fits under the compartment that is included. The lighting mechanism is in good working mechanical order and moves back and forth as it should but the electric wire will need to be reconnected so it can light up. A bulb is included but has not been tested. The red plastic top on the smoke stack comes off, so will be packed separately along with the small metal fuel pan.
