Reply to "American Flyer 727 Curved Rubber Roadbed and Track With "Sharp As Nails" Track Pins - Can Anyone Identify These Items?"

Interestingly, I brought the roadbed to the local hobby store, since I wanted it to be preserved if the roadbed could be useful to an AF aficionado The first question asked, was, "Do you have any straights?"  When I said no, he indicated that the only reason he bought curves from someon was to get the straight sections of the roadbed.  He has plenty of curved sections.

I laughed to myself, now understanding why a hobby shop that was closing had only 53 sections of curved roadbed!!!

Having been in business since the early 1980's, the hobby store owner was also familiar with the older, 3-rail AF track with the nail-like pins -- obviously an antiquated design, but probably very effective in holding the track together for "floor" layouts.
