Don't Sleep on Cool O gauge Flyer like this Blue Comet!
American Flyer was originally based in Chicago and made three rail Standard Gauge and O gauge and even wind ups...just like Lionel. It was not until just before WW2 that Olympian turned entrepreneur AC Gilbert bought the company and started focusing on a truer scale from their base in New Haven, Connecticut.
But during Mr. Coleman's ownership of Chicago American Flyer, there was some really neat stuff being produced. A Standard Gauge Presidential Special, a chrome Standard Gauge train set, O and 027 Hiawatha sets, and so much more. And LOTS of cool O gauge both heavy metal and tinplate.
Check out this really cool American Flyer Prewar O gauge Blue Comet articulated streamliner passenger set from the 1930s. Flyer made some really neat stuff in three rail before World War 2. Yes, it will run on any O or 027 three rail. It has been serviced here and is ready to rock your train room! https://www.ebay.com/itm/204543812599
