 Here's another listing by   

Lone Star Trains and Collectibles,

Your Classic Era Train Headquarters! 
If you have been waiting for this set, wait no longer. THIS is the one.

SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN PAST THE POLICIES FOR 60 MORE PICTURES!!! WE WANT you to see everything. We have provided 80+ pictures--take advantage of them and look at every detail before bidding.  

You are looking at an interesting American Flyer COMPLETE set from 1955. This is the GREEN stripe version of the Silver Rocket set. That means it was the satin silver version of the loco and cars, and the cars are the scarce GREEN STRIPE versions. And best of all, these cars are CLEAN.

This is one of those sets that collectors seek because of the green stripes and of course the quality. But most notably, the set consisits of FOUR PASSENGER CARS, an impressive consist.

If you are a toy collector or an American Flyer collector, this is one of  those sets you really need to have. Or perhaps you have an American Flyer collector on your Christmas list. What an amazing day the 25th would be when he or she opens a set still in the box, just like at the toy store in 1955. And they will wonder where you found something in such great shape from 60+ years ago.

Please take the time to read the whole description and look at all 80+ pictures below before bidding. There are 24 just above the description and 60 extra pictures in the added description section below everything, so keep scrolling. We took time in writing it for you. We look forward to any questions--we answer all emails.

Here is a detailed breakdown of each item for your consideration:

THE ROCKET 474 PA POWERED UNIT

The PA is the powered unit. Satin silver version. We tested it and it ran smoothly. E-unit cycles. Looks like new.
To be Hyper-critical: On one side, facing to the right, there is a very small little rubbing in the green directly up from M. There is a speck-sized dot on the roof.  Very small scratch on the nose.  That's it.
The decals are all great, and the sides are nice--this is rare with this unit. Check out the nose decal. The printing is sharp. The paint is fantastic. 

The original wrapper is here for this engine. The printing is nice on the wrapper. It even has the little tray that hold the powered unit inside the wrapper.

THE 475 DUMMY A UNIT PA

Is like new. This thing is A+. Clean paint, decals, printing. The "American Flyer" printing on one side is stamped a little lighter than on the other side. 
The wrapper is nice. As you can see, the printing is legible.

All of the passenger cars have

  • Die Cast trucks
  • Operating knuckle couplers
  • Satin Silver Painted bodies
  • Green painted stripes
  • Body fluting 
  • Stamped American Flyer Lines 
  • Rivetted Nameplates
  • Window Silhouettes

THE BOTTOMS OF THESE CARS ARE ALL SHINY LIKE NEW.

THE 960 G COLUMBUS Combination COACH BAGGAGE Club Car

The BOX is all here.Thin tape residue on printed end flap. Printing has a little fade. Flaps have a little wear and creasing. Stain on bottom of box. Structurally good.

THE 961 G JEFFERSON COACH CAR

The BOX is all here. Printing is clear. Flaps have a little wear and creasing. Some pencil writing on the bottom. Structurally good.


THE 962 G HAMILTON VISTA DOME CAR

The BOX is all here. All of the boxes are structurally good, but this box is the strongest. Printing is legible but a little faded. Flaps have a little wear and creasing.  Someone wrote what the set is on the non-printed end flap.


None of the boxes are weak or soft. Just some creasing from end flap use.
