Only one ever made and is in perfect condition. Runs on 6 transformers, the steam engine is always in motion.
The trains wheels seem to chug along as well as the smoke stack continues to change with its on going smoke in motion. You can almost hear the whistle blow as the neon puff shows the train whistle in action. The sign is designed so you may change the speed of the motion. The front of the sign is solid black aluminum and in the night it seems the neon is free floating.
