I would disagree... slightly.Pretty rough life it has had. It's not much good as it is except a "Shelf Model".
Don't try to clean it - you will ruin any collectors value - if it has any - doubtful?
That is an eclectic bunch of stuff. Just because it is American Flyer does not mean it is S-scale. In fact I would say that all of these are HO scale models except for the one loco.I also found these in the bunch.
Yes, some collector might be able to use them for spare parts. I don't know of any American Flyer collectors on this forum. Perhaps a local train store or hobby store could find them a good home.I found them in a garage someone left for me to clean out. They were probably collected from what was being thrown out, of an abandoned home. They were wrapped up in newspaper. Not knowing about trains, they were posted here to find out what they were, good or bad. Now I know they are almost worthless. I looks like they would have been worth something, if they had been cared for or were very unique. I did think they would be useful at least for spare parts.
The measurement of the guage (of all of them) is about 5/8", but more like 16.5mm, so when someone finds this post in 5 years, it could be useful for them.
