American Flyer O gauge #556 Royal Blue 2-4-2 engine & tender. Engine ran good on test track forward & reverse, e-unit cylcled correctly, headlight works, front truck is not original, rear truck is original and has metal fatigue. There is some paint loss and scratches on the engine and tender. The main drive wheels and frame are in good condition with no visible fatigue that I could see, all side rods are present and it looks like the rivets that hold the linkage to the shell may have been replaced at some point, they seen too shiny in appearance. The tender is in good condition with some spots of surface rust and is missing 1 journal on one of the trucks. The "Royal Blue" decals on the engine are not in bad shape, also the stamped # "556" on the cab sides is still mostly legible,and "American Flyer Lines" on the tender are has some wear (see pictures). There is some surface rust on the grab irons, hand rails, tender wheels & axles and side rods as pictured. I have described this to the best of my ability.
