Websites, Forums for American Flyer "Diehards"?

Unread postby Atkinson_Railroad » Fri Feb 14, 2020 5:50 pm

Enjoying a [memory moment] unpacking American Flyer equipment.

This stuff has been dropped, dragged, and played with to its weakest soldering connections.
(There's plenty of curiosity factor remaining for this hardy train stuff for 5-year-olds and up).

Somewhere on the Internet there must be a predominately popular website devoted to American Flyer.
Google searches do not always reveal where the "real" action is.

Where/what are the best websites devoted to the "American Flyer" experience?

Thank you ahead-of-time for any leads, suggestions.

John

Post Script: Yes, I could spend time looking for the websites... [but] that robs me of exploring everything in the long stored boxes ; )

Well this is just plain goofy. I have been a competent repair person (or so I thought ; ) having worked on multi-million dollar pieces of equipment.
I'm discovering the reeving sequence for re-stringing my American Flyer wrecker is not a task for the faint-of-heart.
No wonder most of the EBAY pictures showing these cranes for-sale also show the strings all tangled up and not really in their functioning place.
