Original Gilbert American Flyer Bodies
Custom Painted with New Roadnames
Ready to run with your choice of trucks

NOTICE: 5 Newly Decorated 
American Flyer Cars Now Available. 

We have custom painted and printed original American Flyer bodies that we obtained directly from the A.C. Gilbert factory in New Haven Connecticut when it closed.

NEW SERIES OF CABOOSES
Gilbert produced Locos in a variety of road names...but they did not issue cabooses in matching road names.

So.... Hobby Surplus is taking original  Gilbert caboose bodies and producing a series of standard A.F. cabooses in road names to match each of the Locos A.C. Gilbert produced. 

Each body is painted in prototypical colors with authentic heralds and markings.  We are using a state of the art production facility.  The graphics are so crisp and clear that even the tiny markings on the car ends are legible.
