Publisher Comments:

A bargain buy when first introduced as Chicago Flyer, American Flyer trains rose to premier toy train status in the last half of the 20th century, and maintain the second spot today! The companys claim to fame, the S gauge train, is supported by the wide gauge and prewar HO and O gauge trains, in collector popularity, and this one-of-a-kind guide covers all three groups in extensive detail. The most comprehensive overview of the American Flyer line, this book follows the winning format of the Standard Catalog line of toy train references. It is the only full-color guide on the subject, serving the needs of toy train collectors who rely on detailed color photos to accurately identify trains.

" second spot " ? must be a Lionel fan ! I have built model railroads for years, but it wasn't until I was given a box of old " Flyer" stuff that I re-connected with the FUN of playing with trains. chuffing smoke and lights and whistles,rocketing around curves and through switches, It's a blast ! but, I really didn't know anything about them, so I bought this book to get up to speed. WOW ! for 33 bucks, it's 400 full-color pages of "drool-factor ten " American Flyer. not just the trains in all gauges, but more accessories and doodads than you ever dreamed. Gilbert was amazing. the price guide is interesting, but the real thrill is page after page of all that is "flyer". Max says: "buy it "
