A.c. Gilbert Erector Hudson 4-6-4 Complete New Set # 8 1/2 + 2 Extra Tracks:
Up for sale From a local estate of a Doctor who was a member of the A.C. Gilbert Heritage Society is The A.C. Gilbert Erector Set 8 1/2 Hudson Locomotive and Tender New York Central NEW!. This Engine was built and completed in the last few days from a Erector 8 1/2 Set that was new but in the wrong box. We are the first to assemble this train and it is in amazing condition and is 100% complete. This Train is 50 inches Long!!! It took 40-50 hours to complete this set.There is not one thing missing from this train. It has the original p58 engine that is installed and wired and was tested and works perfectly. I will also include, but not pictured a p56g optional motor for this set. And as a bonus I am including 2 extras pieces of track that sell for around $100 on . The 2 pieces of bonus track are used. The Trains cosmetic conditionis near mint with light scratches on most surfaces from being moved around in the box over the years. The paint is over all in near mint conditon for an Erector set from 1933. The only thing missing from this set is the instructions. The set is complete and accounted for. We do not have the original box for the 8 1/2 set or we would have never assembled this set. We do have however is the box with amazing original graphic for Set #A which was the accesory set for the #8 which was only the engine, the Tender came with the accesory set. We built this set from instructions found on the Heritage Societies website and also verified full parts list and they even helped out a little on a few unknow part placements. This set Engine is 100% complete and Assembled properly. The jacks are also incuded for setting up and turning on to see it in live action! The drive assembly will need to be "tuned" to get it running smoothly. We have it running but it wants to bind up and stop and we have to help it along. We received help from the Heritage Society on this and we were instructed to try aligning the brive wheel brackets offset at 90degrees. Also included are the original decals for the Tender That make this the New York Central 4-6-4 Hudson mile a minute Steam Engine! This is an awesome set New!
