For bid is this very nice vintage American Flyer 303 4-4-2 steam locomotive and tender. This pair is in very nice condition, having just minimal age wear and a few scattered light scratches, no observed chips, cracks or gouges. Pease see the photos which clearly show the very clean condition of this nice locomotive and tender pair. The only real flaw I could find is that the little metal whistle is missing from the top, I almost missed it. The pilot has BOTH small steps intact, rare for these plastic atlantics, they are usually broken off. Whitewalls are nice and tight on the wheels and rubber pull-mor traction tires are in great shape. Tested and runs excellent, both forward and reverse, has nice bright headlight, has operating smoke and choo-choo with the red glowing smokestack, e-unit cycles pretty well, considering that this has been on shelf display for many years and will operate better with some use. The e-unit was already cycling normally after only a 10 minute run. This engine runs great but I would still recommend a little oil on the bearings before extended running as this has been on shelf display for several years.I SHIP TO THE US CONTINENTAL 48 STATES ONLY.
