I'm beginning to think that I should stop posting photos of American Flyer equipment. I seem to be creating competition for myself.
Nah! What fun would that be. There is plenty of it out there for everyone. You just have to be patient in your search. (But I am glad I have my examples already.)
Where does he get those wonderful toys?
is the af o 561 would that be considered a 3/16 engine, the prewar sorta s gauge size ?
great looking Flyer tin guys
Nice Terry, I like that series of cars!
Thanks George, and to everyone who has complimented the collection. My goal is not to make anyone jealous, but to share it with other collectors who enjoy the beauty, whimsy, history, and fun of tinplate trains. I enjoy sharing the toys I have collected and the information that I have gathered. This is a great hobby with so many aspects. Its wonderful to see how many different ways that people are involved with tinplate. And its great to have a place to come and chat with others who understand this infatuation.
Now I have to go find something to post on the thread for the new week.
Our Shay driven Tin Plate Work Train, on the over head Shelf Ceiling layout.
Work continues on the Pine Creek Train Room.
well Greg if you're willing to share I'll send you my mailing and a list of what I'd like share....
my 620 project updated with the couplers and brake stands from the donor 831. hated to use it for parts but the original parts was nice to have, anyone need an 831 body?
Great looking 620 Spot Light Car, you made the right decision~
the 620 body was a junk box find...it included 2 2620 bodies that had the yoke and handrails, Dennis Holler found an e bay listing for the spotlight...$5...and the $4 831 from last weeks show.
Dave outstanding restoration work!
