Small black and white decal on rear doors, 'BUILT BY LIONEL' heat stamped to the rear of rear doors. This is variation - 03 with small GM decal, snap-in portholes and grey body mold. The decals vanish naturally over the air spaces around the door nose - it will happen on any unit with a decal placed over an air space and cannot be stopped.

GRADING: The grading standards for 'Excellent' state the piece can have 'minute' scratches. Here at the Train Station we interpret this to mean if we can hold the piece 2 feet away and cannot see the scratch, the scratches are 'minute' and the piece can be graded as excellent (We believe this is a much more rigorous grading than the current norm).
