Great looking set from a collector's estate sale. The set appeared to have been put away for a very long time and had some mildew from storage, we only gently wiped items down. We did not assemble the train and some of it appeared not to have been used (New Old Stock) and we wanted to leave it as we obtained it.
The engine has some wear and the cars some age wear, but look pretty nice. We photographed from all angles to allow you to be able assess condition. We plugged in the Model 8B Transformer and it appeared to be operating as designed, but we did not hook up to components. We are not experts but this appears to be a complete and functional set with all the trimmings.
We will itemize what we can below, but certainly will miss some details. All manuals and boxes shown in pictures are included. The boxes are marked Pat 1940, others 1947 and 1948 as best we can tell. New Haven Express #651 Green, Baggage Car, Non light.
New Haven #650 Coach, Green, Light Up. Pullman Passenger #653, Black, Light Up.Pullman Passenger #652, Black, Light Up. Reading Lines Black, American Flyer #302 Coal Engine with lights. Model 8B Transformer Speed Control Electric 100 Watts. Lots of loose track, 7 straight pieces, 10 pieces curved. Track in original box, 12 curved pieces.
Assorted plastic track (crossing and other) and electric components. Misc Wiring, Clips, Switches, other as seen in pictures. Most of the cars seem in pretty good shape with the #302 Engine perhaps having more use than others.
Some of the internal plastic attachments in one Pullman Car have come loose in places and you can hear them if you shake the case. As noted, we did not assemble train to operate so not sure the lights in trains work, but assume they should.
