Description
WOW! This is an amazing discovery!

From the 1960s Remco Toys STAR TREK set, here's the ASTRO TRAIN vehicle!!

It is in excellent condition (only wear of note is to the label sticker; looks like both stickers were stuck on same side), and - get this...
IT STILL WORKS!!

I couldn't believe it when I put in the batteries! (Now I can't get it to stop! There must be a switch here, somewhere!)

There is an odd lever on the top of the vehicle, which raises a blue rod in the center. Not sure of its function, or if there is supposed to be more to it.

Meaures approximately 9" long, 5-1/2" tall, 3-1/4" wide. All wheels, gears, excellent - battery compartment clean!

This is an extremely rare item, so I had to put a reserve on it (although not too high).

Priority postage and insurance will be complimentary!


On 12/23/99 at 19:11:17 PST, seller added the following information:

I just found two more items to include in this auction! Not sure how they fit in with the Astro Train... but at least one is definitely from the Remco "Star Trek" set (has the "Star Trek" sticker and says "REMCO" on it!)

I've scanned two views of the two items below. One appears to be a "communicator" toy of some sort, while the other fits on a different piece and has a plastic "lens" in it.

If you are familiar with the set, I'm sure you know the significance of these items.

If I find more pieces along the way, I will include them (even after the original shipment is made) to the high bidder meeting my reserve.

Thanks for your interest!

    Leave feedback to seller - Leave feedback to bidder.

Details for the seller and high bidder(s):
The seller should contact the winning bidder(s) with information on the total cost, including shipping, and where to send payment. The winning bidder(s) must pay the seller directly for the item(s), and it is the seller's responsibility to fulfill the order when payment terms are met. The binding contract of the auction is between the winning bidder and the seller.

If the seller is unable to establish contact with the high bidder within 3 business days, the seller may contact the next highest bidder. Therefore, if the high bidder does not contact the seller within 3 business days of the end of the auction, he/she may lose the place as winning bidder, and be at risk for receiving negative feedback and/or a Non-Paying Bidder warning, both of which can ultimately lead to suspension from eBay.
