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.
That's the best argument for not worrying about rusted track, if you have patience, there's lots of it available cheap. Great price on the track mopac.Got this in the mail yesterday. A 700 box of 12 straight track.
Track in great condition. I am not a cardboard collector. The
OB is not that big of a deal to me. But this box is very nice.
All flaps are nice. The best part is it was 1.99 on ebay. 9 ship.
I don't know yet if I needed more track but at that price I had to go.
