Yet another Amer8ican Flyer O Gauge set. I certainly appreciate the help you all have provided as I am definitely out of my league.
This freight set is headed by a 401 and was made in 1938 as I believe that was the only year AF made the curly-q couplers. I believe these are the early couplers as they have the band in the middle of the couplers.
Questions: What was the set called? And what are the car numbers. The 401 is missing the side rods and valve gear as well as the first axle/wheelset in the trailing truck, the lumber car is missing a brakewheel, the caboose is missing the endrail and the boxcar has been terribly repainted. Am I missing anything?
How about approximate value? I plan to list it here on the Forum.
Thanks in advance.
