Made a jig so I could cut a few faux lumber loads for my Flyer flat-cars:

Now I need to try again at mass-producing the clips that hold the load in place. Easier said than done, lol.

How extraordinary. I recently saw something quite similar to this online somewhere---fully restored--will try to find the link again.

BTW I have posted this elsewhere but thought you might enjoy seeing this again---- a scanned copy of the 1954 A.C. Gilbert American Flyer Train Catalog by A.C. Gilbert, New Haven, Ct. 48 full color pages of steamed up and ready to go trains. https://www.flickr.com/photos/blackcaps ... 2824942749

A recent project, a refurbishment of a prewar Flyer 3018:

Goal was to strip and repaint the 3018's badly chipped tank in a color approximating the original. Used a tank end-cap off a basket-case Flyer 1118 to replace a missing one on the 3018. Gold lettering decals are water-slides from K4. Replacement wheels, axle, and journals from the bit-box.

Nice little set that has seen some good use and care.

Always very cool to see older trains.
