Prewar Wide Gauge American Flyer #4694 4-4-2 Steam Loco & #4694t Tender For Sale
for offer is a vintage original prewar wide gauge American Flyer #4694 4-4-2 steam locomotive in fair condition suitable for restoration along with a matching #4694T tender.
#4694 (former Ives 1134 casting) - cab/boiler seems to be fine but dirty. It shows no cracks or warpage that I can make out. Black paint may be retouched on cab. 'American Flyer' brass name plate inset in former 'Ives' recess. Boiler front 'button' reads "4694." Driver and trailing wheels completely shot and will have to be replaced. Lead truck wheels OK. Motor does not run but turns when wheels are rotated.
#4694T - quite dirty but complete. Black paint may have been retouched on sides?? Coupler retaining nuts have been locked in place with solder.
I am not a train collector or expert. Most of
the description here is taken from notes left by my late father (the collector) and
hanging out around him over the years.
If I have rated this item as "Excellent" or "Good"
for instance, it is from an amateur perspective, not that of a TCA member. Likewise, if I have stated that the item seems to be original, then I see no obvious signs of repainting or alternation but subtle indications may have alluded me. Again I am no expert and I have been fooled by well done restorations in the past. CAVEAT EMPTOR!
I have provided multiple close-up photographs
in the hopes that you will be able to judge the quality and/or originality of the item
yourself. If I have incorrectly
identified something, please let me know, so that I can modify the description.
All items are offered on a "as is" basis and no returns are accepted.
