A C Gilbert s Famous American Flyer Trains Book Description:

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. Climb aboard with us as we discover these fascinating trains made between 1946 and 1966, which have provided a long-lasting legacy from The A.C. Gilbert Company. Includes handy alphabetical and numerical indexes. An invaluable book worth every penny! This book tells you what S gauge products Gilbert made and when. Its covers such items as the Royal Blue, 4-8-4 Northerns, 0-8-0 switchers, the Pennsylvania 0-6-0’s and 4-6-2s and the famous 4-6-4 New York Central Hudsons. In the diesel chapter, you’ll read about the colorful PA-style Alco Santa Fe warbonnet units, the rare Silver Flash and the beautiful yellow and blue Comet locomotives, the green and yellow A-A Rocket units, the classy C&O Geeps, the New Haven Alco A units in white, red and black, and the later-era General Motors diesels from 1961. Freight cars from the State of Maine 40-foot box car to the Missouri Pacific yellow-blue-gray box cars to the Northern Pacific Pig Palace cars are covered in detail, as are the Chicago & NorthWestern refrigerator cars, the American Refrigerator cars, tank cars, Baker’s Chocloate cars, Gilbert and Celanese chemical cars, hoppers and covered hoppers, flats, depressed center flats, gondolas, cranes, and operating cars such as the milk car, tie car, rocket launcher and lumber cars. Passenger cars included are the New Haven-style red and green cars, the long, six-wheel truck Pullman-style passenger cars in red and green, the streamlined passenger combines, coaches, domes and observation cars, and the 1959-1960 Frontiersman passenger cars. Exciting accessories such as the #787 Log Loader, #752 Seaboard Coaler, #23796 Sawmill, #583 Electromatic Crane, #766 Animated Station, #578 Station Figure Set and #789 Baggage Smasher Station are also described and detailed.
