UP FOR AUCTION IS A VERY NICE AMERICAN FLYER 1958 PACEMAKER TRAIN SET. INCLUDED IS THE ORIGINAL SET BOX, WHICH SHOWS THE SET NUMBER (AS SEEN IN PICTURE #11) AND THE FACT THAT THIS SET WAS ORIGINALLY SENT TO THE NAVY IN OAKLAND CA. AS SEEN IN THE ADDITIONAL STENCILING ON THE BOX (AS SEEN IN PICTURE #12). ALL OF THE CARS IN THIS SET ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND COME IN THEIR ORIGINAL RED AND WHITE BOXES. AS A USUAL PRACTICE, IN ORDER TO RID ITSELF OF EXCESS 900 SERIES CARS, FLYER SUBSITUTED TWO 900 SERIES CARS FOR THE COMPARABLE 5 DIGIT CAR. RIGHT CAR, RIGHT BOX, WRONG NUMBER ON THE WESTERN ELECTRIC DEPRESSED CENTER REEL CAR SHOWING #936, BUT SHOULD BE #24519. THE #24536 MONON FLATCAR WITH THE TWO A/F TRAILERS WAS SUBSTITUTED WITH A #956 MONON FLATCAR. AGAIN, RIGHT CAR, RIGHT BOX, WRONG NUMBER ON THE CAR ITSELF.

THE 4-6-4 #326 HUDSON LOCOMOTIVE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH THE LARGER MOTOR. AGAIN, FLYER RID ITSELF OF EXCESS STOCK AND SUBSTITUTED THE #326 HUDSON FOR THE VERY RARE #21129 HUDSON LOCOMOTIVE.

SINCE EBAY ONLY ALLOWS 12 PICTURES, I HAD TO LIMIT WHAT I SUBMITTED, AND HAD TO LEAVE OUT ABOUT 15 OTHER PICTURES. ALTHOUGH THE CARS THEMSELVES ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, THE BOXES HAVE HAD MASKING TAPE PLACED ON THEM YEARS AND YEARS AGO, AND THE MASKING TAPE IS NOW FLAKING OFF IN BITS AND PIECES. ALL OF THE BOX END FLAPS ARE ATTACHED IN PLACE, AND A FEW OF THE END FLAP THAT TUCKS INTO THE BOX BOTTOM ARE COMING OFF. THE BOX FOR THE A.R.T. #24413 IS HELD TOGETHER WITH RUBBER BANDS, BUT COULD EASILY BE RE-GLUED.

THE #22030 100 WATT TRANSFORMER IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN TESTED AND DOES NOT HAVE A BOX. THE RED AND WHITE BOX FOR THE CURVED TRACK IS MISSING, HOWEVER, THE CURVED TRACK IN INCLUDED AND IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. T ARE 12 PIECES OF FLYER CURVED TRACK IN THE PICTURES, HOWEVER, I ADDED THOSE AND THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL SET AS I OBTAINED IT. THE SET SHOULD HAVE 6 STRAIGHT PIECES OF TRACK, BUT THEY WEREN'T T EITHER. I WILL SEE IF I CAN GET MY HANDS ON SOME STRAIGHT TRACK AND THE APPROPRIATE RED AND WHITE TRACK BOX.

THIS SET ALSO CONTAINS THE ELECTRONIC WHISTLE BUTTON, CYLINDER, AND RED AND WHITE BOX, SOME TRACK LOCK SMALL ENVELOPES WITH THE TRACK LOCKS, AND AN UNCOUPLER AND BUTTON.

ALL IN ALL, ALTHOUGH NOT PERFECT, A GREAT SET TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION. PLEASE EMAIL ME THROUGH EBAY, SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS.
