Aster Gauge 1 Commodore Vanderbilt & Accucraft rake of 8 NYC Streamlined Passenger Cars

1 item left


A fantastic opportunity to purchase a stunning set including an Aster electric Commodore Vanderbilt and rake of eight metal Accucraft NYC streamliner coaches.

The locomotive, produced by Aster to run on electric, has been professionally fitted with a Peter Spoerer radio control system and although no hand controller is included (as the original owner kept this for other locos) a video of the locomotive and coaches running can be found on YouTube.

This particular model is from the 1984 run and is no. 064 of only 135 produced worldwide.

The coaches are stunning. Their construction appears to be a combination of brass and die-cast, with very highly detailed interiors.

Cab detailing


Loco - Overall condition is excellent - the main discrepancy is that the side cladding, just below the smoke box, is very slightly coming away, and looks to have had at one stage a glue repair made to keep them held in. This would however be very easy to repair. Other than that, the loco only shows very light signs of use, having been well cared for by it's previous owner

Coaches - Overall the coaches are excellent with some minor signs of outdoor use. The main issue is with four of the eight, where for some reason, the window strips have distorted and become 'wavey'. They could however be replaced with long strips of glazing.
