Gilbert American Flyer Passenger Cars For Sale
(last updated May 8, 2010)

I am helping a lady sell her late father's collection on behalf of her mother.  She's in no rush to sell so you can buy things in batches over the coming months.  Her primary interest is that they go to people who will appreciate them as much as her father did.  The whole collection has been kept in an air conditioned outbuilding with a dehumidifier.

This page lists the used Gilbert American Flyer passenger cars in the collection.  A few of these cars are of collector quality (TCA C-7).  Some are what I call nice operator quality (C-6 to C-7), but most are C-5 or lower quality ("well-weathered").  Unless otherwise noted, the TCA ratings given on this page are based on the one and only picture I have of the car, which is shown here on this page.

I don't have any of the cars shown on this page; these are pictures she sent me.  If you are interested in any of these items, email me at theupstairstrain@yahoo.com and I will have her ship them to me so I can verify condition and we'll negotiate prices that are fair to both you and the widow.  Please include your address so I can calculate shipping charges and send you an invoice with the total.

I show 2008 Greenberg book values for reference purposes, but these should not be interpreted as asking prices. Make an offer she can't refuse!  Email me: theupstairstrain@yahoo.com.  Please include your address so we can calculate shipping charges and send you an invoice with the total.

Separate pages show:

- about 100 of the recent
American Flyer engines and cars made by Lionel.  She and her mother are almost certain that none of these items have ever been out of the box.

- hundreds of used Gilbert Flyer items:
engines, freight cars, passenger cars (this page), and accessories.  There are also nine boxes of track, roadbed, and switches.  She's still working on the list and pictures of those.

- freight cars and accessories made by
other manufacturers: American Models, Lionel, Littletown, and Marx.
