Sheeesh!!! The mother lode, looks like Christmas came early. I'm sure when you work your magic on these you'll have some nice pieces. I really like the 4 part 302. In my opinion they are much nicer then the 1 piece boilers. Neat 640, one could build quite a collection just getting all of the 640 variations. Nice scores flyernut.

They all look great. Congrats on a good show.

The NP car looks really nice.

I went to casino today. Shouldn't have. I figure I lost at least 3 nice hudsons, maybe 4. Not good. Got stupid AGAIN.
I was up 150 and didn't leave. Really stupid.
You see, when you're up like that, cash out and head straight for the buffet!!!

I love the 4-piece. Some day, I'll have to dig all of them out and see how many I really do have!!

A little update on my 282 that had a rough trip through the mail. I did not burn the
seller on feedback. I could have, but I can fix the damage. I did send the seller a message
letting them know you can't put one of these old locomotives loose in a box and ship it.
I got a message this morning thanking me for the info and that $10.00 had been refunded
to my paypal. So only 14.50 for the 282. Plus shipping.

On those 4 part (1948) 302s. I was seeing a bunch on ebay. Have not seen one for a few weeks. I would like one also.
I will find a deal on one.

282 for rebuild and parts

The inventory is building up fast. (My wife is holding her tongue but is getting nervous. ) I am in process of re wiring and servicing my 282. The parts machine arrived yesterday. I am anxiously awaiting my Hudson which should arrive in 4 or 5 days.

Both are good looking units Broke. Top one looks just like my old 282 (1952).
Except yours looks a little nicer. Bottom looks like 1953.

Congrats on scoring a Hudson. I have done nothing with mine yet. We want to see
the Hudson. They are beauties. What number is yours.

I bid on a 290 this morning. I bid 25.13. It went for 26.13. It had issues. I think it was missing a reverse unit.
Pic of the tender bottom showed no screws for reverse unit and no lever for lockout. It only had 2 wires from
tender to engine. It probably only ran in forward. The engine had better paint than my 290 so I was going to switch the body.
And the grease pan was missing. The train Tender has repros for 4 bucks.

Awaiting Hudson

Mopac it is a 322AC. It is suppose to be in C-6 very good condition and runs. We will see... I did pay more than I had wanted to but I wanted a good running Hudson.

Crazy Freddy's American Flyer Lineup

Fred's journey into American Flyer addiction. As I get all of the loco's (appropriate word) restored and running good, I will take new photos of them and maybe even a video. In the mean time, these photos will have to do.
1) 21160
2) 307
3) 302AC
4) 282
5) 322AC - coming soon
and a bunch of parts and 2 transformers

Broke, you are getting a nice collection.

I paid more for my Hudson and my northern.

Sometimes it's better to spend a little more up front when looking at engines that are at least according to the seller running at the time, then going through the frustration of figuring out whats wrong. Unless your comfortable with repairs like flyernut and myself then sometimes a little more now is better then a bunch of little things later as you figure out whats wrong. I don't buy anything off of ebay, only in person and I don't buy it if it isn't running. Others have no problem with online shopping but I enjoy the face to face interaction with sellers. Maybe that's why I haven't bought anything lately.
