Awesome Gilbert AMERICAN FLYER TRAIN SET 20545 with Boxes and Papers

This is a really wonderful American Flyer Trainset 20545 with all the goodies. This train has been in my family for years. It has always been stored inside in its' original outer box. It really wasn't "played" with it was considered to be more of a very special prized possession. I have 100 percent positive feedback on my Ebay Rubyisabella ID. I also made a little film on You Tube of the train going around the track. Here is the link: /watch?=-ccmAfP_161 If this doesn't work go to You Tube and search for America Flyers and look for Rubyisabella site and you will see the train in action.A train lover send me this description of my train set.
