302

003.JPG, it should say 302's. Picked up a pair of non-running 302's lately.. After my usual service, they run, smoke, light,etc, very nicely.

Very nice examples of what I call 1948 302s. Amazing, over 70 years old and running nicely. I have one of those I got from you. Are those keepers or are you going to find new homes for them? I like that they have metal hand rails and metal bodies.

I'm not quite sure yet buddy.I'd like to increase the smoke volume one one of them though...By the way, do you have the Doors die-cast 1/64 car??? It's a blue Mustang, and it's in a edition of 9,999 made. Think I'll get one.....

Ed, those tenders are metal. Flyernut, I am not familiar with the Doors mustang.
I do not have one. I will watch for one. Is it Johnny Lightning? flyernut, if you decide to sell one, I like the one on top. The darker one. If it has not been repainted. The one I got from you, you repainted it. It is a great repaint, but I would like one not repainted. If
the top one is the one with light smoke, don't worry about it, I will take care of it. LOL, just price it accordingly. I really have enough 302s but I do like those 1948 babies.


For some crazy reason I am starting to want a K335. I have 2 northerns and don't really need more, but you know how it is.
And I still want12 or 24 pieces of K-Line 27" curves.

Ok Thanks.
I guess American Flyer stopped making metal tenders in the 50's?

The car is made by Racing Champions, and the car is called Blue Lady, with a picture of Jim Morrison in the background, issue #38..My older son as well as myself are big Doors fans, and I just might get one...Both of those 302's are original paints. The only repo stuff is the wiring harness..I'll keep you in mind about the 302..

Yep, the tenders are sheet metal or "tin". The K5's were die-cast as well as the Northerns and Hudsons.
