About American Flyer Trains

"Toot, toot." American Flyer trains put America on the map and bumped Germany out of the number one manufacturer's spot for toy trains during the early part of the 20th century. This transition from imported electric trains to American Flyer's first O gauge model released in 1918 changed the toy train market forever, and made it desirable to own a piece of American history. A large inventory of vintage and modern American flyer railroad items on eBay makes it simple to put the thundering steel of a Norfolk and Western steam locomotive right in your living room. Two tough motors and the momentum flywheel push this puller with its operational headlights and classification lights. The engine cab has illumination, real glass in the windows, and authentic engineer and firefighter figurines to stoke the flames. Choose the old boxcars, refrigerated cars, or oil tankers to complete the train in a variety of gauges designed to bring locomotive excitement up close. American Flyer trains and their cars, figures, and tracks make celebrating that love of American steel a family adventure.
