    Unboxing an unbuilt Metroliner

    The story behind Born in the late 70s, I grew up in the 80s. My favourite themes were town (I received nearly all town sets from that era), and technic. Moreover, I'd always like to have one of those beautiful 4,5/12V train sets, like 7735 or 7745. But my parents told me that I could either get technic stuff set or train sets, but not both themes together. So, it always ended up with increasing my technic collection... In 1991, I saw a new chance. A new system, a new era. 4563 was the set to go. But again, my parents refused, arguing that I would be too old for Lego in general. They were right, I went on to buy my first computer (which is another story) and bought my last Lego sets in 1992. The dark ages started. But they were not 100% dark, as I never missed to grab the new catalog each year, what helped to keep me on track. Some years ago, the dark ages were gone and I went into PF trains. Simply because they were available easily, they were affordable and they were close to 80s looks and standards. In contrast to the city theme, where cars and everything else seems to be extremely blown up, compared to 80s 4wide standards. The story today I never planned to get into 9V trains. TLG has dropped the 9V system quite some years ago, even the support has ended. Sets and parts are highly sought after, and therefore rather expensive, even if they are in used condition. But some days ago, it happened: I managed to get an unbuilt 4558 Metroliner at a reasonable price. I just couldn't resist. Seals are loose due to age, but the parts are still in their trans-clear bags. Opening the set The top of the box looks rather worn: Parts in sorting tray and polybags: Sorting tray, foil is still sticking firmy: Compared to today's sets, the amount of parts looks somewhat small: Instructions in perfect condition, stickers look also very good: What's next? I don't know. Keep the set unbuilt? Build it? Try to get a box which is in better condition? Try to swap it against an unbuilt 4563 set?
  2. Hi, First of all, thank you for all your replies on my first post of polishing lego clear parts. My another question is about the inner contents of Metroliner 4558. As you guys all know, this great train set was re-released in 2001 with the set number 10001 with black and white box. As far as I know, before I get into 'dark age' of my Lego back in 1990, the last set was 6285, and at that time the inside contents was not just sealed brick bags and instruction, but Catalogue and extra manual sheet, if needed. I did some research and found that the original 4558 set contains great catalogue and extra manual sheet of operating electric train system. I wonder whether the inner contents of 10001 is as same as 4558. Of course the catalogue could not be same as it was released in 2001, but what about other inner contents? Thank you~
