Gilbert HO Piggyback Unloader. Platform is virtually identical to the S gauge version. There is a cardboard brick patterned ramp that the track goes on to bring it to the proper level. Car is not the same as the 33509 trailer flat although both flats share the same trailer. Hard to find accessory in complete condition and boxed.

I love passenger sets and this is one of my favorite sets Gilbert made. This is the 1957 version with the matching B unit. I also have the 5 digit version and the Pikemaster version, with extra coaches and vista domes for them. This set is nice but the original owner thought it would be easier to put back in the box if the horns weren't there.

Here is the hardest Alco to find out of the three they made. This is the non-bell ringer C&O #31017 in its original box. The demonstrator model below it although common in it's normal form is unusual in that the gray roof vent was never painted gray!

Here's the hardest prewar locomotive to find in one piece. Most of the die cast driver equipped Hudson's self destructed due to poor quality castings. This one is in remarkably good original condition and only shows a little bit of deteriorating in the drivers. The tender shell is imploding and the tender chassis I had to repair but I have a decent replacement.

The second picture is the same die-cast driver Hudson with the more common brass rimmed Bakelite driver variation, also in excellent original condition.

Quite an education here, Ken. Thanks for the thread.
Would it be fair to call Gilbert the predecessor of
Tyco?
