This hard-to-find piece is in wonderful condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and little to no paint loss. Santa drives the train and rings a bell while the reindeer sits watch at the front with a lantern. It's missing its Holt Howard label and Santa's face has a little roughness that looks like part of the manufacturing, but otherwise it's minty. It can hold two candles, one on the roof and one in the smokestack. I believe the other little holes on the roof were meant to hold sprigs of greenery.
