Up for auction today is a complete, ready to run, American Flyer train set which includes an engine, tender, eight cars, numerous accessories, track, switches and a transformer. There is everything you need to start running your own railroad display today. You will experience true model railroading when you handle the throtte of the big eight car American Flyer smoker with its locomotive that sounds off with Choo-Choo sounds. It has PULL-MOR power that lets it climb the steepest of grades and haul long strings of cars and it produces smoke that glows a realistic red as it puffs from the stack. This is a great vintage operating train in super condition and the offering includes the following items:

The American Flyer #293 Pacific style New York, New Haven, and Hartford die cast locomotive and its accompanying tender. The engine has been tuned up and the reverse unit has been serviced. The control fingers have been replaced and a new wire harness installed. The engine changes direction smoothly without missing a shift. There is an operating headlight and a boiler mounted smoke unit that produces volumes of smoke (see pictures). The engine shows minor playwear and the white stripe has been touched up. Both the engine and tender are equipped with the A.C. Gilbert knuckel coupling system as are all of the cars in this offering.
