Vintage American Flyer Train Set - Collector's delight! Bonus Plasticville buildings.
This was my father's train set and has been boxed up for over 30 years. It is a large lot, with many accessories detailed below. Engine and cars are all in excellent or good condition, and many have original boxes which are in fair to good condition. A little TLC and these vintage trains will shine. This is likely an American Flyer 4611 set (possibly 1949) with additional accessories added. I am selling the whole lot together, so please do not ask for any individual items. Everything is sold "as is" - this set was used and minor signs of use are apparent. I will be happy to answer any questions to best of my ability - this train has not been run for 30 years, but everything worked at that time. Stated shipping is to 48 continental United States only - other locations will have additional shipping fees. This set will sell itself - NO RESERVE.
