You are looking at the biggest transformer available in the postwar era. This is a vintage American Flyer #30B transformer. The 30B is one of the most powerful made in toy train land--it has 300 watts of power and two controllers. Just...WOW. This one has been tested here at Lone Star Trains and is doing everything it should. It was made 1948-60.
EVEN BETTER, unlike any postwar Lionel transformers, this one came with voltage meters built in!
This one features:
two visible meters so you can monitor what you are outputting
- built in circuit breakers
- American Flyer's famous "DeadMan's Control"
- Short circuit light indicators
DUAL CONTROLS: You can run two different loops of train with the two separate circuits and controls here

This one looks GREAT. Even the bottom is clean...and that back plate that always seems to corrode...it is clean as well. It operates as it should. It makes a little noise, humming as they all do.
Whether you run Flyer or Lionel, you can use this AC power supply. And one thing I always liked about this model is that UNLIKE ANY LIONEL TRANSFORMER from the era, THIS model has
- Deadman Control: when you pull up on the handles, the power is interrupted which will trip the reverse unit in the locomotive.
A switch to turn it OFF wiothout having to unplug it!
