American Flyer GP7 FlyerChief Info

Brendan,

I looked for the post in which you were having problems with a Flyer engine but could not find it. The problem, in the video you posted,  looked like binding in the drive train, did you ever find the problem?

I replaced the motor with one one Dean gave me (Thanks Dean)  Initial test looked good.  Unfortunately, life is in the way right now and haven't been able to get back to it.  I did order and receive the BlueRail board for it, though.

From the 2017 AF catalog.  It was pretty obvious that there was B&M motive power coming down the line.  

It is nice to see Flyer in the V2 catalog again. It sucked having to go a full year between everything.  I Would have liked to see a C&NW geep in there. Maybe next time.  Cool for everyone who did not get a Berk the first time around to be able to get one now. I also like the improvements to the PE set.

Hi everyone,

Friday fun day! Want to share some photos and a short (and shaky - sorry) video of two production samples of the GP7. Received a sample of the North Pole Central and the Santa Fe versions!

These are scheduled to leave the factory tomorrow. So end of Oct/Beginning of November for delivery.

Thanks!

You guys need to get a longer test track...

The new trucks, although a bit short, along with the pilots do make a vast improvement of the looks of the Flyer Geep. 

Even though I've gone back to concentrating on the scale side of S, I think this is definitely a winner for the Flyer enthusiast.

lol, funny enough the engineering dept. is in the middle of a move/upgrade. Our layout is currently torn down as we're building up a new department. So my desk is the test layout for the week!

That Santa Fe unit looks great! I've always wanted a blue/yellow version of the Geep. I have one of those on order and it will make a great switch engine. The electrocouplers appear to open wide...an improvement from earlier versions. Thanks for that!

I plan to use the Universal remote for this engine and the UP version that will also be switching at the same time. Gonna be fun.
