I'm trying to find track pieces to this early in-expensive Hafner set. Would you agree that this (pictured) is the correct style of track? 

Yes, it would be correct.

Thank you Steve. Much appreciated!

**You wouldn’t be the “seller” of this set currently online correct? Ha! Just trying to get an honest read on what track truly goes with this set.

Would you also know the era?

Ballpark of mid 30's or earlier. They went to flat track after that. No, nothing I'm selling.

Hi Steve. By “flat” do you mean the type of track I initially posted above? Looks shinier so I’m assuming it’s newer than the ‘30s?

Ties are flat, not banked. Hafner governors are very reliable at controlling speed so the banked track really wasn't needed.

Set 802 had a circle of track and two coaches. Set 901 was the same but only one coach. Not seeing a set 902. I have some more reference material arriving today. I'll look for a 902 this evening.

FYI, there is a Hafner Facebook group.

You need to understand the nature of Hafner set numbers. A set may show for many years, the number/type of cars would stay the same but the style of car may change depending on what was being produced at the time. My first sighting is the 1924-26 catalog, the last is 1930. I have a 1919 catalog, but that set number is not mentioned. That probably has more to do with my lack of catalogs. That style coach was made from 1916-29.

Thanks Steve, Jim. This is really helpful! I'm trying to find age-appropriate tracks for my 802 set. You really have helped in this matter. This said, I'd to alert anyone interested that I have some curved/straight/LT/RT tracks from the "902" set if anyone's interested. Cheers!
