    I’m currently building a layout for the first time using the original American Flyer track and rolling stock that belonged to my dad when he was young. In addition to the track that created my dad's original oval, I recently purchased some AF Fastrack that provides R27 turns for some...

    Alright professionals and skilled amateurs, I’ve got a chassis(and the goods) and tender for an AF 283 in good shape(bad shell) and was wondering if a shell from a 31x or 32x would fit. Fairly confident a 31x would but, although it’s tough finding one without the reverse switch slot on top. Just...

    Hi - I'm running original AF track, transformer and rolling stock - and the occasional long-and-heavy train (think North Coast Limited, A-B-A pulling seven cars). What do you think would be a reasonable maximum grade to climb, or, say, the length of track to bring the train from ground-level up...
  6. General Model Train Discussion
    So, I dug out my models trains from many, many years ago and one of the 2 engines is the 21139. It still runs fine going forward but doesn't seem to go in reverse. I did some searching and learned that most, if not all of the time, the reversing mechanism and electronics are located in the...

    So I'm putting together an American Flyer 1934 9900 Aluminum set. Piecing it together to get familiar with AF. Disassembly, cleaning, sand blasting, polishing, etc no issues. Figuring out what motors will fit in the power car is challenging. I see many motors that look to be the same size...

    I have just finished laying track and cork roadbed for my American Flyer xmas garden. If it is not moving fast enough (reasonable speed; not slow but not too fast to jump on a curve), my #302 locomotive "stalls" when passing over my re-railer. Of course, the "stall" occurs when the tender is on...

    I am afraid I'm not a train enthusiast, which is why I can't understand why I was given this set, but it is for sale nonetheless. I am not sure what it's worth, but from what I was told it's between $400-600. I was hoping someone might give me a more exact appraisal? The set is from 1960, all...

    So, I posted some trains I acquired on this forum a week ago. Some older Lionel, Marx, American Flyer trains and a lot of O scale tracks, a transformer, and a DC power pack.

    Looking for a right side crosshead assembly for a 332 steam locomotive. I believe it is called a crosshead. Others online selling similar parts call them valve gear or linkages. I believe the AF part # is XA10699RA thanks

    Gentlemen, I have been asked to make an offer on a train set where most of the items; rolling stock, track, trestle set, switches, plasticville structures, etc have their original boxes. I generally have a pretty good idea of what things are worth w/o boxes, but would like to have some idea of...

    Just purchased an American Flyer 332, (DC) without a tender. They haven't seemed to have come up very often on ebay. So I am wondering can we use the Market Place Forum to list "want to buys?" or "want to trade?".
  19. O Scale
    I just bought 100+ pieces of AF O gauge track, most of which is 4 rail. I searched the Internet for information and didn't find much. Does anyone know what the 4th rail is for? Or which trains used it? It may have been for a whistle.
