49604 Western Pacific California Zephyr Passenger Set. C-10 condition in the original boxes. The boxes are in P-10 condition; I have never seen boxes in this condition anywhere outside of a store. $400.00

I also have the separately-sold add-on cars for this set. They are listed on the S Scale Items For Sale page of this website.



I am in the process of assembling some ready-to-run sets from the Gilbert Era (1940s to 1960s) using the various engines, cars, track, etc., currently on hand. As I get them ready, this page will list them. I am offering these sets with no track; instead, I offer a selection of different track configurations for you to choose from:

  1. A simple loop of track with 12 curves and 2 straights for $12.00.

  2. A larger loop with 12 curves and 6 straights, a good size to go around a small Christmas Tree, for $18.00.


  1. A figure-8 with 18 curves, 4 straights, 4 half-straights, and a #725 crossover, with a book value of $27.50.

The first set is a very nice Ready-to-Run American Flyer Knuckle Coupler Set #1476. Knowing that kids love to put things in train cars and give them a ride, I created this set with a hopper and gondola, in addition to a steam engine, boxcar, loaded hopper, caboose and a #704 manual uncoupler. The engine and cars have their original, working knuckle couplers. This set is sold without track so you can select whatever you want, but pictured here on the larger loop that I offer for $18.00. The book value of the set is $188.70.



The 283 Chicago NorthWestern (CNW) Lines Steam Locomotive is in near C-7 condition. I serviced it and it runs well in forward and reverse. The reverse unit is more reliable than most, but does stick occasionally. The choo-choo sound is terrific and the smoke unit works great. The headlight works. $70.00



937 painted MKT Katy boxcar in C-5 (Good) to C-6 (Very Good) condition; the catwalk ends and the rest of the body have no breaks, chips, or cracks; one door latch is missing. The brake wheel is present. Both knuckle couplers work. There are spots of paint loss on the top, but only a little on the sides and ladders; one side is really nice, a strong C-6, but the side with the missing door latch has a number of marks. $20.00

#921 CB&Q Hopper in near C-7 (Excellent) condition. All four steps are intact. Both knuckle couplers work. The car is exceptionally clean and there is virtually no paint loss. $29.00



940 Wabash hopper in near C-7 (Excellent) condition. All four steps are intact. Both knuckle couplers work. The car is exceptionally clean and there is virtually no paint loss. $20.00

931 Texas & Pacific (T&P) gondola in near C-7 (Excellent) condition. All four steps are intact. Both knuckle couplers work. The car is exceptionally clean and there is virtually no paint loss. $14.00.



#930 Tuscan Caboose in near C-7 (Excellent) condition. All four steps are intact. Both knuckle couplers work. The car is exceptionally clean and there is virtually no paint loss. The light works. One end os the catwalk is cracked but solid, in no danger of falling off. $30.00



The set is powered by a #22020 50 Watt Transformer in TCA C-6 condition. The cord is nice and suple with no cracks. I tested it with the engine pulling all five cars and it worked fine. $3.50. A #690 Track Terminal and hook-up wires are included. $0.20



#706 Remote Control Uncoupler in C-6 condition. $2.00
