Description

 Here's another listing by   
Lone Star Trains and Collectibles,
YOUR Classic Era Train Headquarters!
You are looking at a great prewar set. This is a 1920s-30s set ready for the shelf or layout. It is classic Flyer Wide Radius, aka Standard Gauge. This set was called the Sesquicentennial. It is the same size as your other Standard gauge trains and runs on the same track.
It features a unique black and green paint scheme.
It comes with the
  • 4000 Engine
  • 4040 US Mail RPO Railway Post Office
  • America coach
The set is a nice one to have in the collection.

THE 4000 BLACK ELECTRIC ENGINE
Rollers are good. Looks original. Runs but I would suggest a lube or servicing. The light did not work for me; I think the socket is very dirty or needs to be replaced. Tested and runs in both directions. Reverse lever works. As always, we suggest a basic service on items that have been in collections for a long time. Sometimes you have to adjust the rollers a little to make sure they are touching the middle rail on these old ones. 
The base is cast iron--really heavy duty.
The paint has a texture to it as if it has been near heat or in a hot attic, etc. You can see what I mean in the close up pics. Perhaps it has been repainted, but I do not see the usual signs of that. Looking at the inside of the shell, it looks like some dark green overspray, but it is not solid as if it were painted. 
The nameplates all look nice.

The passenger cars have a unique scheme--green bodies and black roofs. Looks great, especially with this engine.

AMERICA COACH
There are scratches, lines, and rubs. Light works, but it has the usual flicker. May want to clean the wheels and the lamp housing. Green body, black roof.

4040 US MAIL RPO

There are scratches, lines, and rubs. Looks pretty good. Pics show all sides. Light works, but it has the usual flicker. May want to clean the wheels and the lamp housing. Green bod, black roof.

A GREAT add to your collection!
