A C Gilbert's Famous American Flyer Trains by Paul C. Nelson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Of all the toys a boy could want, a Gilbert American Flyer train has always been high on the list. Gilbert's American Flyer two-rail trains looked real, featured smoke and choo-choo, horns and whistles, operating lights, realistic-looking couplers and bright paint schemes that matched prototype railroads. Gilbert made complete passenger trains- from baggage cars to observation cars -- to freights with coal hoppers, tank cars, flat cars with loads and colourful box cars, to accessories such as coal loaders, talking stations and revolving aeroplane beacons. Climb aboard as we discover these fascinating trains that were made between 1946 and 1966, and which have provided a long-lasting legacy from The A C Gilbert Company.
