Very nice and hard to find. At least you have the set box. All you need is the 24216 UP hopper, 24419 CN box car and the 977 action caboose to complete the set. I think I'd look again if possible for the missing items. Some of these sets came with the extremely rare 25031 action caboose. One was on ebay a few years ago and the asking price was $10,000.00 and it wasn't in the best condition. It didn't sell, but wouldn't be surprised if it was sold after the auction ended from someone who saw it on ebay. I have only seen 2 of these, both in photos, not in person.It was part of the "Meteor" set from 58' and has whistle. At one time I had the complete set (20435) but all thats left is the engine, Mobilegas tanker, transformer, and set box. All trains were stored at my mothers house for many years and I suspect she did some sort of cleanout since there were other items missing as well. Pity. J.B.
The one on left picked up for 20. The 302 ac picked up years ago at a flea market the tender was a mess clean painted the tender new wire harness. They run pretty good.
Same thing here, the 4-8-2, same years, just before I went to HO.View attachment 502882
This is my first AF locomotive. Got it used in 1955. It is a 1952 model. Runs great Being from when I was a kid I am fond of it.
Oh, its a 282, plastic body Pacific. I need to resolder wires from tender to engine plug. Since this pic I have installed a new harness.
