 Here's another listing by   

Lone Star Trains and Collectibles,

Your Classic Era Train Headquarters! 
You will not find this set cleaner! If you have been waiting for this uncatalogued beauty, wait no longer.

You are looking at an EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN uncatalogued department store set from 1960. This set is often considered the precursor to the famous Prestone set, just with the locomotive relettered.

This 20188 set was an uncatalogued set Flyer issued to department stores in 1960 and was not in the catalog. Moreover, this PARTICULAR set has a few interesting cars including the New Haven flat with the orange pipes.
This set is a PIKEMASTER set with Pikemaster trucks and couplers and track. The contents came in dividers rather than boxes or wrappers inside.

This is ALOT of vintage train for the money, and an item you will be proud of. Or perhaps you have an American Flyer collector.

Please take the time to read the whole description below before bidding. We took time in writing it for you.

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

THE 21161 Burlington Atlantic Steam Engine

CLEAN. The 4-4-2 steam engine and tender truly look like new. Please supersize the pictures to see what I mean. The sheen on the plastic shell, the electronics, the wheels, they all look amazing. This is the version with the Fahrenstock clips on the back of the engine cab which two wires from the tender attach to. I could not get any power at all, which generally means a bad connection somewhere or a loose wire.

24030 Missouri Kansas Texas KATY MKT yellow boxcar

This is a beautiful car. The yellow plastic and printing looks new. One catwalk has a corner chip. There is a little dirt on the letterin on one side; I will leave to you to clean.

THE 24564 New Haven Flat with Orange Pipes Load unnumbered
Super clean. All steps. Has the orange pipe load. Envelope for stakes present.

THE 24130 Pennsylvania Gondola PRR unnumbered
Super clean, sharp patina. All steps. No number on the car side.

THE 24636 Caboose

Shiny and like new. WOW. All the steps. 

Looks fantastic. Has clear tape on it, especially arounmd the corners. Also on sides. Has some soft corners. It is all here including the dividers and a flat top insert. Good stamping/printing.
