NEW INFORMATION: Another eBayer has written us to say that, item #3, the EMPIRE EXPRESS car is actually an American Flyer car made from 1925 -1934. The car does have the words "MADE IN USA" just above the coupler on both ends. The eBayer advises that it can be founf in Greenbergs AF Guide. We appreciate the new information and thank the eBayer for sharing! J&C
