AMERICAN FLYER 303 ENGINE TENDER & CABOOSE

MOST OF THIS WEEK'S CONCURRENTLY RUNNING AUCTIONS ARE AMERICAN FLYER TRAINS OR ACCESSORIES. CHECK THEM OUT, THERE ARE NO RESERVE PRICES ON ANY ITEM.

The units gave a good 10 minute test run, but rather than do any disassembly, I opted to use WD40 to get a smooth operation. At first the e unit did not always function, but as the run went on, it operated properly. I found no chips, cracks, or large scratches, and the the units all fit the TCA ebay definition of C-5 good condition.

From a 35 year collector standpoint, nobody knows it all. From a dealer standpoint, I do my best to give an accurate description. I check all pieces for operation, unless otherwise stated. If a piece will function or just needs cleaning, because of the myriad of cleaners, lubricants, and techniques, I leave that up to the next owner, especially on more desirable collectors items. If the item does not function, or it is a complete set to run, I will clean and lubricate it, noting the lubricant used. My customary lubricant is WD40, which usually only requires another spray application, when the piece operates sluggishly. It can, however, be easily removed with a spray tuner cleaner, and minute drops of lubricant can be applied to each bearing surface. My reason for using this particular lubricant, is that it enhances conduction at electric contacts, and even after it dries, it forms a rust inhibiting coat. I do occasionally miss a flaw or neglect to add some pertinent detail. Don't wait to the last minute to email a question or comment. If you are dissatisfied in any way perhaps a mutually agreeable adjustment can be made. NOTE: I try to get every sale in the mail on the day following payment, and if possible, and I notify the recipient of its actual or pending posting. I always use delivery confirmation, so if your piece doesn't show up in a week, check the delivery confirmation, or send me an email. I have had a few cases where delivery has been attempted, and the piece has been returned to the post office. DON'T WAIT. I assume no liability for loss, once the auction is placed in the hands of the shipper. Whenever feasible, multiple purchases will be combined for cost reduction. I will provide you with an invoice showing the combined weights. Postage will be actual cost. Check out my other items ! Be sure to add me to your favorites list !
