Not sure what to make of this, but it is certainly Grand Scale. Wonder if it could be converted back to original?

There has been quite a bit of discussion about this train on other lists. Wintons are nice locos and now somewhat available from Mammoth Locomotive Works in Colorado, if you can get ahold of them. It is rumored the owner is older and in poor health.

I guess they want $45,000 for this set which would be a good price for a good condition amusement ride, but this one has been sitting for a while....
