Gilbert American Flyer - HO-Gauge Reference Book
Gilbert American Flyer
HO-Gauge Factory Service Manual
Parts List and Diagrams - Reference Book
For All Motorized HO-Gauge
Steam and Diesel Locomotives
1938-1963


         
The staff at AmericanFlyerExpress.com was very lucky during the summer of 2013 to have the good fortune to acquire a "almost complete" copy
          of an "
American Flyer HO-Gauge Service Manual Parts Catalog and Price List" from an estate auction.  This manual contained only a few
          sheets of information for several HO-Gauge Steam and Diesel Locomotives, but definitely not all of them.  Earlier this year (2015) we were able to
          obtain, from a fellow American Flyer Collector, the balance of the HO-Steam and Diesel Locomotives information. This has enabled us to produce
          this book for a complete representation of the Motorized HO-Gauge Steam and Diesel Locomotives manufactured by the A.C. Gilbert Company
        
 from 1938 through 1963.


          What we have done is to to take the information that is included in the original manual and enhance the quality of the Diagrams and Parts
          Listings.  The artwork from the factory wasn't always that clear so we enlarged each Exploded View of the Locomotives and Tenders.  We have
          separated the locomotive to one page and the Tender to another page.  The facing page to the Locomotive is the Parts Listings with the Diagram
          Number, Part Number and the Part Description.  We did the same for the Tender Diagrams.  We did some rearrangement of the graphic elements of
          the diagram and we improved the Wiring Schematics for the Locomotives and Tenders both.  The Schematics were made larger and different symbols
          were used than what was originally used by the factory.  We've also included Service Instructions for each set of Locomotive and Tender Diagrams.

          Our goal was to make this Factory Service Manual information more easily understood by the collector, operator or tinkerer.  We have sought clarity,
          in some instances, with certain parts of the Diagrams or Parts Lists from other American Flyer enthusiasts to make this publication as accurate as
          possible.  But, with all that, it is impossible to know how each locomotive engine left the factory with any consistency from day to day.  But we feel
          the General Information, we are providing, is a good Benchmark for every Motorized HO-Gauge model of Steam and Diesel Locomotives the
         
A.C. Gilbert Company produced from 1938 through 1963.

          The specifications of this Reference Book are:  It is printed on
24# Copy Paper, Laminated Hard Covers front and back, GBC Comb Binding for
          easy layout of the book for reading of the pages.  There is a total of
411 pages.  The Reference Book is Indexed and all locomotives are listed
          numerically for easy reference.

          This would definitely be a great and unique addition to any operator or collector of American Flyer Trains.

          This Reference Book will be shipped
FREE anywhere in the United States.  I will ship this item via United States Media Mail ONLY.

          If you have any questions about this Reference Book, don't hesitate to ask.
