You are looking at a fun American Flyer accessory from 1952, the Animated passenger Station. This one is in great shape.
This is a really fun accessory, one of the ones that gets a lot of attention. The idea is this: The people come off of the passenger car, go through the station, mill around a bit, and then get back on the passenger car when it comes back around.
As you know, it is one of the ones that you need to find the exact speed to get it to run right. That is why there is a knob on the controller. You also need to "adjust" the soft feet on the passengers, much like you had to with your electric football game. If you have the patience, it can be a lot of fun.
This is a good buy if you are looking for an operating one for the layout. There are a few cosmetic flaws described below.
If you have been waiting for it--wait no longer.
- With #735 New Haven style operating passenger car
- With controller
- With four people
- With a COPY of instructions
CONDITION: C-6. Tested and works. The platform has scratches, as you can see. The car has a small chip along the bottom edge of the apron on one side, and is missing one of the operating side doors (but you want it open anyway!). With everything you need. With four passengers (might be repro), controller, and a COPY of instructions.
