VERY HARD TO FIND
ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION
THIS IS THE ONE YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR

You are looking at one of the tougher prewar Flyer finds: the American Flyer Automatic Block Signal #587.  This is an exact remake of the one Gilbert made in 1939-41 for its O gauge three rail line.  It it really tough to find these clean and intact. Though made for O, I am sure it could be used for S. In fact, it was offered in 1946 as well, but was the same item.
The Block Signal was first catalogued in 1939.
“Operated like a real signal system. Permits one train to follow another on a single track without danger of collision.” It is a somewhat complicated set up, but it is worth it. Using blocks, it can stop (and restart)  one train in a block while the other operates in the same direction. Light flashes red or green. Green die cast head; tubular metal shaft; gray base.

Features:
  • Signal illuminates to indicate an occupied block
  • Metal construction
  • With Signal control button
  • Gauge: American Flyer O Gauge
  • Height: 5.5" H
  • 1.75" x 1.75" footprint

SHIPPING INCLUDES SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION AND INSURANCE.
