You all know me as AF's Vintage Toys & Collectibles. I have collected trains for 45+ Years. The next few listings are from my personal collection. Were starting to downsize. Hope you enjoy them as much as I have. All these items were taken out of storage wiped down, Tested and serviced/lubricated. Ready to put back in the box? Or into service, the choice is yours? I am beginning to liquidate a major portion of my prewar Lionel & American Flyer Standard Scale collection. As always submitted for your review. Please check my feedback & bid with confidence.
See you down the line===============================================================================================Enjoy!
This listing will feature a Lionel Standard Gauge Set #340E The Coal Train manufactured 1 year only 1929: I have revised several of the pictures. My photography skills are lacking. Please ask for additonal pictures via email. I could have listed 30 to 40 pictures of this listing. It will not disappoint!
1. Lionel #318E Electric 0-4-0 Super Motor w/drum reversing unit. This unit has an older restoration w/patina, It's paint work is beautiful almost looks original. It has always been a black 318E not a clone. The unit has been re-wheeled w/Model Engineering Wheels. Completely re-wired and ready to roll. Brass work is all original & correct. Simply a stunning power-plant for the sought after load its pulling.
2. Lionel #516 Coal Cars (3) w/ nickel journals, brass plates, ladders & trim.These 3 coal cars will grade from C-5 to C-6. The bad is one brass brake wheel is missing, a second has a broken rod from the brake wheel to the frame. One coal load is a reproduction. All 3 cars paint still has a nice luster, the rubber stamped gold lettering w/capacity data is in very good condition, legible w/nice color still evident. These units have scratches, to be expected for 83 year old original pieces. This set has stayed together since production, these are nice collector quality pieces.
3. Lionel #517 "Coal Train" Caboose Red body w/orange windows minimal wear & a nice sheen evident. Nickel journals, brass plates & railings. The red cupola has the correct black ends. The roof has paint loss on both the red cupola top & the black main roof.
This #340E Coal Train is a rare find together. Its been a well cared for piece in the time I have owned it and am reluctant to part with one of my favorites. Enjoy! If anyone wishes to propose a Buy it Now, I will entertain those offers until a bid has been placed. Then the listing will run its course.
