American Flyer #20558 Truscott Assortment
- Source: eBay
Up for auction is an American Flyer #20558 Truscott Assortment. The main box is in poor condition with a lot of tape coming loose. Also, it was opened from the wrong side to begin with. According to the book The Almost Complete Guide to American Flyer S Gauge Sets by Robert J. Tufts the box number (B4A016) does not match the assortment number (20558). It should be B3A187. This is the way I received it. In any case you can see the contents includes a Frontiersman set with extra #40 baggage car. Notice the tear off tag on the box stating it is "NOT FOR RE-SALE". The set appears to be mint. Also included is a civil war box car and cannon car with cannon. These cars have die cast trucks. There are two boxes of curved track, one box of straight track and a package of track locks. Notice that the boxes are plain with no graphics. There is a station and a large unopened bag of cowboys and Indians. The station roof has a near invisible crack, which may be a repair, at the edge of one ridge line. I doubt a picture would show it very well. There is a Brownie Bullet camera, roll of film and a pad of coupons for film developing. Finally, there is a set of 24 trestles and cardboard mountain pass. I have tried to describe this assortment as completely as I could. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.
