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

Thanks, great info!

Did Postwar Flyer ever make 3' straight sections?  

As to the original post, the track with the sharp pins was 3-rail American Flyer track.  The following post is an excellent description, and is identical to my initial examination and evaluation of the track:  C W Burfle posted:

       "American Flyer wasn't alone in using sharp track pins. Over the years I've seen plenty of tubular track with track pins that looked like the pointed end of a nail. Judging by the way the pins were inserted, they did not look to be user installed."

I honestly thought someone had run out of track pins and fashioned them from nails -- Obviously a different era.
