Rare American Flyer "Presidents Special" Passenger Set

is a great set of early American Flyer Wide Gauge (standard gauge) trains. This is the Presidents Special three car Passenger Set. It features the electric outline No. 4687 locomotive - dark blue; and (3) blue painted roof lithographed cars: No. 4090 "United States Mail Railway Post Office" baggage car, No. 4091 "West Point" Pullman, and the No. 4092 "Annapolis" Observation car, all cars marked "American Flyer Limited".
I have left this set "as found" for all the collectors. I believe that this Set will clean up nicely. It retains some nice lithography and great color, particularly, the roofs of the passenger cars. Dimensions: The loco measures 18" l., and the cars 19". The engine did not run when put on a test track. Wheels turned freely. I did hear the bell ringer sporadically. When looking at the roof of the engine, it looks like a repaint, but upon closer look, and some cleaning (see the small spot w I took some compound to), I believe we have the original paint. The sides are definately original to the piece. The cars are in good condition - as you can see in the photographs. Particularly the roofs, which show very little wear. Wear is evident on the lithography. Some oxidation on the wheels, which should clean off fine. This is one not to be missed! A large and impressive train. Thanks.
