These appear to be new and unused. I have tested both and they run, albeit a bit stiffly (they've been in their boxes for who-knows-how-long).
The light works on the A-unit. I'd recommend a little oil before you put them to work.
These units are not DCC-ready, but they have a circuit board so wiring them up should be pretty straightforward. Both units are in their original packaging with original paperwork. The boxes have some shelf wear.
Knuckle couplers are installed and the horn-hook couplers are in their original bags. The A unit is missing a headlight lens (not sure if it ever had one).
The B unit has some white marks styrofoam? On the engineer's side, #2 end. Please see photos for details.
