This auction offers the striking American Flyer 48366 Jersey Central boxcar. This bright red boxcar with white lettering and graphics was manufactured by Lionel as a part of their American Flyer S-Gauge line in 2007 and has been a popular seller ever since. The car is brand new, out of box only for pictures and inspection (so that I can offer my unconditional guarantee). Equipped with diecast trucks, operating knuckle couplers, and a metal frame, this car prominently features the Lady Liberty-based logo of the Central Railroad Company of New Jersey. The only oddity about this offering is that the box in which the car arrived is a tad shop-worn and not labeled on either end. I created labels for both ends which feature all of the relevant information including the proper UPC number (although not the bar code, itself). If a perfect box is important to you, this offering may not be your best choice as the box has been altered by me to include the new label. Please see the image of the end of the box.
Please review my images with care. I try to adhere strictly to TCA grading standards . I rate this car C-9, factory new, my highest rating. TCA has recently clarified their ratings such that I will now use C-9 as my highest rating for any of my listings, even the brand new in box items. I do think you will be happy with the overall condition of this car, but if not, as always with all my offerings, you may bid with total confidence because if you are not pleased you are free to return your purchase within seven days after receipt for a full refund. I do ask that you notify me if you find a problem and give me a chance to rectify it prior to shipping the item back.
I strive to be a "five star seller" and I work hard to please. I want you to be happy!
A note about my images. I try to provide large, clear images from all angles -- top, bottom, both ends and both sides. I am happy to email additional images of higher resolution if you need them. These images are of the actual item for sale:
In order fully to comply with safe buying/selling recommendations from both eBay and PayPal, I restrict sales to persons in the US who have a verified PayPal account, and I only ship to confirmed PayPal addresses. If your account is not verified and/or your address is not confirmed, you must email me for permission to place a bid. Thank you for your cooperation with these safe buying/selling practices!
Shipping via US Priority Mail is 8.95 anywhere in the continental USA. I only charge for actual postage when I ship. If your package ships for less than the amount listed, I will refund the difference either in the package or via PayPal. Very sorry, but additional charges may be invoiced prior to shipment for packages being mailed to Alaska and Hawaii.
I do combine shipping on multiple purchases. If you purchase more than one item during any auction period (usually less than two hours), please wait for a combined invoice with reduced shipping charge. If you wish to go ahead and pay the full amount to ship each item, I will refund any overage.
Please note: I try hard to ship within one business day of receiving notice of confirmed I print postage from the PayPal web site. PayPal does not permit a label to print until confirmed payment is received. This is a policy of PayPal, not me, but this policy does slow your shipment if you choose a payment method on PayPal which delays confirmation of your payment. A good example of this problem is the "e-check" option which slows my ability to ship your purchase. In the past this delay has been attributed to me but that is never the case. The delay for "e-check" in the past has been up to seven days. I will ship within twenty four business hours of receiving clearance on PayPal. Your patience with non-standard payment methods is deeply and humbly requested.
Unconditional seven day warranty from day of receipt. There are no handling or restocking fees, no hidden charges. I want you to be ha...
