THIS IS A VERY RARE AMERICAN FLYER TRAIN SET CALLED THE NUMBER 4130 HUDSON 4 CAR FREIGHT SET. IT IS ALL STILL INSIDE THE ORIGINAL BOX, AND COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING CARTON THAT IT WAS SHIPPED OUT IN. WE WERE TOLD IT LAST RUNNING BACK IN 1988, WE COULDNT TEST IT BECAUSE SOME OF THE ENGINE WHEELS ARE CHIPPED, SO BEFORE YOU BID PLEASE UNDERSTAND YOU ARE BUYING THIS SET AS IS.

THE BOX IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO CORNERS RIPPED, IT IS COMPLETE, SOLID AND CRISP. EACH OF THE BOXES INSIDE THAT THE ENGINE AND CARS GO IN ARE ALL STILL MARKED BY THEIR NUMBERS ON THE SIDES. THERE ARE STRAIGHT AND CURVED TRACK. THE STRAIGHT ARE INSIDE THE BOX IN THE BOTTOM COMPARTMENT. IT HAS A DIRECTIONAL CONTROL, AND A CONTROL BUTTON THERE IS STILL AN ORIGINAL INSPECTION SHEET INSIDE THE BOX.

THE ENGINE IS THE 531 WITH A 4-6-4. ITS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH JUST MINIMAL REGULAR WEAR TO IT, IT HAS THE BELL, SHINY RAILS ON BOTH SIDES, A HEADLIGHT, NO CRACKS IN THE DIECAST, NUMBERS ON BOTH SIDES, BUT SOME OF THE FRONT AND REAR WHEELS ARE CHIPPED. THE TENDER IS A 563C HUDSON THATS IN ROUGH CONDITION MAINLY ON THE TOP WITH PAINT CHIPPED OFF AND FLAKING AREAS. LETTERING IS CLEAR, THE WHEELS ARE GOOD, IT HAS THE RAILS, AND IS MARKED ON THE END 563C.

THE 506 BOXCAR IS THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO. ITS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH CLEAR LETTERING ON BOTH SIDES, A BRAKE WHEEL, SLIDING DOORS, LINK COUPLERS ON BOTH ENDS, AND GOOD WHEELS.

THE 504 GONDOLA CAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, IT HAS CLEAR LETTERING ON BOTH SIDES, A BRAKE WHEEL, LINK COUPLERS, ANF GOOD WHEELS.

THE 514 WRECK CAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE BOOM ARM CRANKS UP AND DOWN ALONG WITH THE HOOK AND STRING GOES UP AND DOWN. IT HAS LINK COUPLERS, AND GOOD WHEELS.

THE 516 CABOOSE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. ITS ILLUMINATED, HAS LETTERING ON BOTH SIDES, HAS THE STACK, AND GOOD WHEELS.

THE VERY UNIQUE BOX THAT THIS SET WAS SHIPPED IN IS SPILT ON ONE SIDE, BUT THE REST IS STILL GOOD, YOU COULD RETAPE IT IF YOU WANTED TO. ON ONE SIDE IT SAYS " 1- NO. 4130 HUDSON 4- CAR FRT. SET." THE OTHER SIDE SAYS " HARRISON WHSLE. CO. CHICAGO, ILL. FROM- A. C. GILBERT CO. NEW HAVEN, CONN. FROM BEING STORED IN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING CARTON IS WHY THE ORIGINAL SET BOX IS STILL IN SUCH GREAT CONDITION.

THIS IS TRULY A RARE AND AWESOME AMERICAN FLYER SET YOU DONT FIND THAT OFTEN AND WOULD BE A FANTASTIC ADDITION TO ANY AMERICAN FLYER COLLECTION. I AM GOING TO SHIP THE ENGINE TENDER CARS SEPERATE FROM THE BOXES, THAT IS WHY THE SHIPPING WITH INSURANCE MIGHT SEEM HIGH. BUT IT DOES WEIGH 16 POUNDS, AND ITS PROBBABLY THE SAFEST WAY TO DO IT. THANKS FOR LOOKING.
