    My dad was an American Flyer collector… and we are seeking information on an o-Gauge set… any insight and help you can offer is much appreciated… smile… We have an American Flyer O-Gauge set in a plain brown set box with the engine, tender, and cars in individual brown cardboard boxes. The...
  2. S Scale
    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...
  3. 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...

  5. O Scale
    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...
  6. S Scale
    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...
  7. For Sale or Trade (member-to-member)
    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
  14. S Scale
    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...

  16. For Sale or Trade (member-to-member)
    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?".
  17. 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.
  18. HO Scale
    I was told this was an American Flyer 45 degree angle rocket launcher missing the top (and very important) blue plastic housing and modified for some sort of third (middle) rail pickup. The trucks appear to be non-original scale trucks. Any ideas? Anyone have the rest of this car for sale...
