When was the 302AC made?? I believe I know the answer,(1950,51), but I'm in a discussion with a person who saws the 302AC was made in 1948, with a 4-piece boiler..I' ve never seen or heard of one?????
My heart monitor I wore for 2 weeks showed a bad irregular heart-beat.. I was ordered to have a full stress test on a tread-mill within 24 hours for check for a blockage in the lower heart.. The monitor also showed the bottom of my heart wasn't working too well.After all those tests the cardiologist called and said they found no blockages in the heart.So now, I'm being sent to a heart specialist that deals with the electric impulses to the heart..I think I'll bring along one of my ZW's.......Flyernut, according to my handy dandy brand new to me 1946-2021 Greenberg American Flyer pocket price guide, the 302AC is listed as a 4 piece boiler with handrails in 1948. Also listed is 1 piece die-cast boiler with hand rails made in 1950-51. I do have one but will have to check to see which die-cast version I have. Lastly, as Sagas reports, a plastic version with extended cast handrails from 1952 is listed also. All 3 versions are shown in David Doyle's American Flyer Trains book. The 4 piece boiler type I version has a scarcity rating of 2, while the type II 1 piece boiler version, has a scarcity rating of 3.
How are you doing now days?
