American Flyer collectors, what could be better than a chance to aquire the ultra rare C1001 White's box car? How about acquiring the 1962 boxed set 20212 in which the car was made for? This 1962 uncataloged set produced for sale to the White's Discount Center in Wichita Falls Texas not only contains the rare C1001 box car, but also contains the F-9 combo 21206 and 21206-1 along with the complimentary rolling stock and original set box with the White's Stores Inc stamp and shipping label. This shows signs of use, but is overall excellent condition, I would grade it overall as C-7. The centerpiece C1001 box car shows little playwear. Trucks, couplers and wheels are in excellent condition. The base is clean and rust free. Catwalks are in tact. There is no brake wheel, but from what I've seen in other photos of this car, I do not think it left the factory with one even though the body has accommodations for one. The lettering is crisp and strong, with the only flaw being a minute scratch on the "W" of the WSX on one side. Both the power and dummy engine are also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks. Both units retain their horns. The lettering is strong on both units and both have their original nose decals and headlight stickers. When bench tested, the power unit's motor ran strong, but it's drive wheels were not moving. Upon closer inspection, I discovered it has a broken drive gear on the axle. This is a common problem with these engines, but is a simple fix if you are inclined to run these. Moving on to the rolling stock, this set also includes the following:#24329 Hooker Chemical car#24052 United Fruit Growers box car #24127 Monon gondola #25081 Hay Jector action box car (no hay bales) #25071 Tie Jector car (with track trip and 3 ties) #24636 Caboose ( both cat walks are chipped off) All the above rolling stock is in excellent condition with the exception of the caboose's cat walks. All trucks, couplers, and wheels are intact with no cracks, breaks or bends. The set box is solid with one tear to one of the top flaps. I believe it came with two inserts, but the is only one. The box is stamped on both ends "train set 20212". It is stamped on the top "White Stores Inc", and also has a White Stores Inc shipping label on one side. Included is 12 curved track, 6 straight track, an incomplete trestle set, an envelope of track locks, transformer, and various instructions and order forms. The paper items are tattered with some missing pieces. Please view pictures and ask any questions you may have. Good luck, Happy Holidays, and .
