AMERICAN FLYER S Ga. Erie Reel Car No. 936 in box

American Flyer A.C. Gilbert S Gauge Erie Depressed Center Reel Car No. 936 in box

You're bidding on an American Flyer A.C. Gilbert No. 936 Erie Depressed Center Reel Car with its box (pencilled ID). Manufactured 1956. Unlike the 946 I just listed, this item has only good things to point out: The car is especially clean, with very little dust, and even less rust. It appears to be complete and unchanged, both brakewheels in place. The box in is great shape, too: lower flap on open end is torn off (cleanly) and included. Please look closely and ask any questions before bidding.

If you can't see a detail clearly from the posted images I can provide higher res. images by email upon reasonable request.
