PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING
ITEM DESCRIPTION

Hello and Welcome! Please check our store for other great items this week! Today we have a very beautiful , standard gauge tinplate passenger train set! This set was never run! Just in from its original , adult owner. This is a gorgeous standard gauge train and will be a center piece in any toy train collection! This standard gauge set was produced by Lionel in the early nineties! It is a reproduction of a very famous American Flyer train set from about 1928! At that time, the Flyer execs decided to chrome the President's Special set and make the most fabulous toy train ever built! It was stunning then and is stunning now! This train shines so much, I cannot get a good picture of it, too much reflection. This gorgeous American Flyer President's Special set comes with the 4689 Locomotive and three matching cars. The original owner never ran this set but it was displayed, thus I have called it like new, but really most people would call it new! The finish on the cars and engine looks great. The only real wear I can see from display is one handrail stanchion on the top of the engine cab is loose and could be replaced if desired. The locomotive item number is 13109. It has a traditional motor and a ringing bell! The three cars numbers are 13425,6 and 7. There is the 4390 West Point baggage car, the 4391 Academy passenger car, and the 4392 Army/Navy observation car. All pieces of the train come with their original boxes. The instructions for the locomotive are also here. There are some slight tears on some box ends but for the most part, they have held up very well. This set as many of you may know, is extremely hard to find and is considered to be highly collectible for standard gauge collections. Current Greenburg value on the Mayflower electric engine alone is $2500.00. This set , when displayed in your train room, will be the center of attention, not your Blue Comet or State set! This set is heavy and valuable! Shipping costs bear that out. Put it in your collection today! Please VIEW THE PICTURES and make your own assessment of this items condition! The pictures are an integral part of our descriptions! Please read all the sections of this listing page. Thanks for shopping with Absoloot Necessities today!
