    I have these, took me awhile to find the Gold 5488 edition.  Other stuff I have is the 856 series trains from Athearn trains.  I need to dig them out to get photos, but there was 3 of them, the 1st was painted normal black and red, the 2nd was black and red but included an all gold locomotive, the 3rd included the locomotive and cars all being painted gold, which I was told there was only 4 sets made.   But here is some pictures to start with.  IMG_20200121_194716249.thumb.jpg.32c3f7c4eade4c3f92bf3e41aa800db8.jpgIMG_20200121_194633412.thumb.jpg.894fba1f9e32638a9951406f925675ad.jpg

    the playset above is NIB and has the place mat with it.

    The poster I bought from Girad Auctions.

    So how many gold 5488 were made?  That is cool.

    That was very nice of you guys to go over and ask if they needed anything. A combine fire is a event you're never going to forget. Standing there watching it burn until the fire department gets it out. Been there, done that in 2013. Some people call them insurance fire's. Well I can tell you mine was no insurance fire. Mine had been paid off and I had no intention whatsoever of (updating). The same day my 2388 burnt, a fairly new Deere did also. It had a cab fire, and a relatively new Gleaner in the next county east of me burnt too. I was talking to a guy at the dealership one day several years after the 2388 burnt, and a fella listening piped up and said he had a 2377 burn. Thought his started the same way as my 2388 did. Bearing on a straw spreader went out.

    Best thing is to leave the dust shields off around the spreaders so it can't pack in there.

    Super IH , the cab over belongs to my friend Herbert Starzinger from Austria , we just got done with the full service and waiting for a headlight bucket that was all cracked up . It’s getting frame painted and new aluminum outside rears and everything buffed out . Have to get the IH radio put in it and the fuel gage sending unit , drivers seat and it’s ready to head over across the pond . It has a 450 hp Cummins in it with a 10 speed road ranger just over 200,000 miles , the truck is really clean and has not been run in the salt , no rust anywhere ..

    Very cool, that is my next project someday to restore a Transtar

    I have told many people.  Deere made and makes a lot of good tractors and machinery , but I never liked Deere  and never will.  Their better than thou art attitude just turns me off. 

    Exactly
