Bachmann M*A*S*H Train Set

One of the more unusual pieces of M*A*S*H memorabilia is the Bachmann HO scale train set. I’m not a model train person so read this Wikipedia page for some information about the “HO scale.” I’m not exactly sure when this set was released but according to Tony Cook’s HO-Scale Trains Resource it was featured in Bachmann’s 1983 catalog, meaning it was likely available in 1983-1984. It features a 45″ x 36″ oval track and 89 pieces, including five train cars, a plastic jeep, a plastic helicopter, a water tower, 10 cardboard buildings, 48 plastic figurines and paper to be used as a mountain backdrop. According to Toy Soldier HQ Inc, the figurines were not special army people but the regular Bachmann train figurine set made up of 24 men, women and children, in both white and green.

One of these sets sold on eBay a few weeks ago for $296.01. It seems that the train cars themselves were released separately and can often be found for sale on eBay. If there are any model train enthusiasts reading this know anything about the Bachmann HO scale train set for M*A*S*H, please add your thoughts in the comments.

        A box that size with 89 pc set compound, shipped properly will cost way more than $45.00?! Unless you own or work for a company shipping for you …

      You can buy it from me. But only if you want a BRAND NEW set with all pieces in original packaging, original paperwork in good shape, and everything still in its original box. It’s been in my father’s attic with other train sets in a larger box for almost 35 years!

      The box is open so I took some pictures for those interested. The only knock is a few spots of surface damage to the box but nothing too bad and no tears. I take PayPal only and including shipping I want $400. E-mail me if you’re serious. Thanks for reading.
