You are bidding on the second of several ready-to-run American Flyer sets I am in the process of assembling from the Gilbert Era (1940s to 1960s) using the various engines, cars, etc., I currently have on hand. I am offering these sets with no track; instead, I offer a selection of different track configurations for you to choose from. The winner of this auction can choose one of the following track configurations and I will add it to the invoice.

A simple loop of track with 12 curves and 2 straights for $10.00. It can be seen in the pictures of Starter Set #1418 below.

A figure-8 with 18 curves, 4 straights, 4 half-straights, and a #725 crossover for $25.00.

Or you can specify what you want and we'll negotiate a price for it.
