Members, We would like to feature your layouts here...
   We are always looking for pictures of member's current or early American Flyer layouts (with captions and/or articles) to post on the website.
   Any layout is fun and there are many kinds of American Flyer layouts from the very basic tracks around the Christmas tree to the largest, most complete and complex layouts. We would like to see them all.

The above illustration is from the top of the box for the number 720 Switches.
It shows the 644 Crane car, 585 Tool Shed, 596 Water Tower, 761 Semaphore and the 593 Signal Tower.
