          The staff at AmericanFlyerExpress.com was very lucky to have the good fortune to acquire a "complete" copy of an American Flyer "Service  Manual
          Parts Catalog and Price List" from an estate sale.  This manual had all of the Diagrams and Parts List for every Cataloged Steam and Diesel  
          Locomotive that was manufactured by the A.C. Gilbert Company, New Haven, CT.  This Manual had been updated to October 1962.  We have found,
          that date in 1962, was the last update that was sent out to the Service Repair Stations throughout the country.  If there were any other updates, they
          might have been limited to the Factory Staff.  It also contained Factory Memos that talked of many changes that seemed to be made, on a frequent
          basis.  Parts would become Obsolete, Redesigned or Eliminated altogether.  That was quite the surprise to us, but in manufacturing, that is very
          common.  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 S-Gauge model of locomotives the A.C. Gilbert Company produced from
          1946 through 1966.

          This is the Second Edition of our Gilbert American Flyer - Factory Service Manual - Parts List and Diagrams Reference Book.  In this    
          edition we have included the
Wiring Diagrams for all Smoke In Tender Locomotives and the hard-to-find #314AW - Whistle In Tender Wiring
          Diagram. 
We have also included several enhancements
to some of the 2-Position Reverse Units that are used by several of the locomotives.

          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
570 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.
