Since I have been "off the air" so to speak for a few days due to Christmas activities, I just saw this post from AmFlyer. My first American Flyer set I got for Christmas in 1954 included this same cardboard trestle set.
To the best of my recollection, I remember this trestle set and the 303 engine, IC reefer, gondola, and caboose train set as being in one box which my dad bought from the Sears & Roebuck catalog. Knowing my dad, he wouldn't have bought 2 separate boxes since that would have constituted 2 gifts. Each kid got only one present. I just remember the set box being a big box. Being from Sears & Roebuck, I have never seen a set box like that one leading me to believe that, as with a lot of other stores' sets sold at the time, this set was uncatalogued. I have never seen this set in any publication to get a set number.
My dad had set it up for Christmas morning in a figure 8 configuration. I have a photo showing part of the set up, though not the whole figure 8, since the photo was of my sister. My train and trestle set are partially in the photo. Somewhere I have a photo of the whole thing but have yet to find it. That photo shows the whole figure 8 set up with engine number. Naturally I put it where I couldn't forget where it is. ???

Kenny, now that you brought it up you have to find the photo! At the moment I am freezing in Baltimore, when I get home I will get you the set number for your 303.

How can you tell? I wouldn't know by looking at it and would wonder why it didnt work on AC.

I don't know about the tender is for DC, but it does look like it is for an engine with reverse unit in boiler. The tender might not have a reverse unit in it.
If tender does not work for you, it would make a nice auxiliary tender.

And then again, it might be a 5 digit engine tender. Is there only 2 wires coming out?

There are no DC Hudsons so the tender is for an AC set. It looks like a smoke fill hatch on the tender coal pile so it is likely from a SIT or possibly a 320 that had no smoke or choo choo. It is in nice condition.

As Tom stated, it's a S.I.T. likely from 1948. It appears to have a brass weight. Notice the lever out of the bottom of the tender, that's the on/off lever for the smoke in tender unit. Hard to tell from the picture,but if the center of the trucks have wheel sets, that would be common for early 320,321,322 tenders. On a side note, both the 21129 and 21130 Hudsons had plastic tenders.
