I bought this set as part of a larger lot several weeks ago. Can't remember if I posted it or not....
No, these were part of a collection that I tried buying last year. She was asking $40 dollars for the set, but was very hard to reach. She finally contacted me last month and offered to sell me all the trains her Dad had for a set price. Her dad was the original owner, and still alive when I went to pick them up. We hit it off as we were both veterans of the same time period, Viet Nam. He had tears in his eyes as I left his home.The elusive, uncataloged 1960 20193 set, almost. Looks like an illuminated 961 is standing in for the unlighted 24869 Jefferson coach. Good find, thanks for posting.
I have to ask, by any chance were the other items in the lot a 21160 Atlantic, a 24403 IC reefer, a 24309 Gulf tank car and a 24603 caboose?
