You have more AF stuff then I've ever seen before.
How many complete Train sets do you have now?

At one point, I think I had around 30 complete sets, no set boxes, but quite a few individual boxes.. Of course that doesn't included duplicates and triplicates... I have problems,lol!

Great price for a very nice looking car mopac. The paint looks great as well as the spool.

The 1954 "Mountaineer" set. A set that was never run. Probably given as a gift at the time. Opened, looked at, packed back up and never touched again. Locomotive wrapping, transformer and all paperwork in the carton. This is one of the two other rare times (for me anyway) when I've come across a separate inspection slip for the whole set. Most were probably thrown away but instructions kept. Barry

Nice set, so rare to find one that has not been run. Two questions if you don't mind. were any of the cars packed with cardboard coupler protectors, if so are they square or round? Is there a wood block packed between the engine and tender?

Tom, there are no protectors or wood block. Most likely discarded when unpacked to view the set. All wheels are shiny with no rail marks or imperfections. My first set (5301T) I received at Xmas had a block and round tubes to protect the links from hitting the end of the boxes but, of course, were discarded. The previous set I posted had a few square ones for the KC's but not on all cars and again no wood block. Some later cars given to me to add to sets did have some but not all. As you know, when they changed to the red boxes they added a flap at either end to hold the cars in place and protect the couplers. My "Pathfinder" set (20545) has those. Barry

Thanks for the response. Some of the cars in my original 1950 and 1952 sets had the round protectors. Some of the cars were also wrapped in a yellowish beige paper inside the box.
The red boxes also brought the exact fit box size for boxcars. The trucks were just turned to put the couplers under the chassis.

Tom, I have not come across any paper wrapped cars. My first 53' set was packed the usual way with stamped corrugate for the engine, the blue / yellow boxes for the cars and for the 12 sections of curved track, however the paper that you mentioned I have found used to wrap the number of sections of straight track for sets with various sizes of oval layouts. I assume you have a number of mint unused sets of which I have only a few so you would be the best expert in that area. Barry
