The only issues after examining the set is the following which is posted in the photos. A few cracked tracks on outer edges- doesnt affect the operation as its on the outside of track. The passenger must have jumped out at some point and forgot to roll the window down and broke out the window while doing so- see photos. THE ONLY ONE I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANYWHERE FOR THE PAST 12 MONTHS! BROUGHT TO 4 TRAIN DEALERS AND THEY NEVER SEEN IT EITHER.This is the holy grail of Gilbert HO. The 1963 American Flyer / Gilbert HO set #30742 Eagle Passenger train. This set on a rarity scale of 1-5 rates as a 5 by all of the train guides.
The cars show up from time to time but when was the last time you saw the engine? These engines are extremely scarce. 1963 was the last year for Gilbert HO. T are not that many sets made to begin with and the attrition rate between play ware and gear problems has left few examples around.This is your chance to own one of the most rare train sets in existence!
