A nice mix of American Flyer stories that will thrill and delight the American Flyer enthusiast, no matter their era of interest. All new stories - none are in our original American Flyer Fun & Thrills video

John DeSantis' fine standard gauge collection features rare American Flyer legends like the Mayflower and 15 variations of the 1928 President's Special.
Dave Corbett thinks American Flyer trains are the best and is willing to spiritedly debate the issue with anyone who thinks otherwise.
American Flyer historian, Dave Bubeck, covers the most overlooked category in toy trains - A.C. Gilbert's American Flyer prewar 3/16th O Gauge trains.
American Flyer S gauge trains and accessories in action during the Golden Age of Toy Trains, the late 40s and 50s.
Enthusiasts, including Lou Palumbo, recall vigorously defending their favorite toy train maker during the 50s.
Tom Robinson combines modern era S gauge with AF postwar accessories.
Carl Tuveson's hi-rail layout features beautiful scale scenery combined with S-helper two rail track. Hard to beat for a great realistic look.

In this 2016 TMBV program, it starts with a memoir of Dave Garriguess followed by a look at the American Flyer collection of John DeSantis which was also shown In tinplate legends in action part 3 from 2012, and Dave Corbett of Burlington Wisconsin which he also appeared in the tinplate legends in action series but it�s in part 2 only. These first 3 stories were narrated by producer Tom McComas. Afterwards, the producer�s son Jeff McComas talks about Bob Bubeck�s 3/16 scale trains which was previously used on the Toy train revue reboot part 3 from 2014. Next, Joe Stachler talks about the postwar S Gauge trains, which was previously used on the Golden age of toy trains. Bob Bubeck does some commentary on this segment with some additional commentaries from Tom Robinson, and Clarke Dunham. Afterwards Joe talks about the accessories that American Flyer made in the postwar era. There are commentaries by Tom Robinson, Ed Boyle of O Gauge railroading magazine, Clarke Dunham, and Bob Bubeck. Next, there is a rivalry between American flyer realistic 2 rail track, and Lionel�s non realistic 3 rail track, not to mention the quality of the models. Not only does joe did some narration for this segment, but there is commentary from Paul Remias, Bob Bubeck, Allan Miller & Ed Boyle of O gauge railroading magazine, Lou Palumbo and Tom Robinson. With the segments from the golden age of Toy Trains finished, producer Tom McComas talks about the modern American Flyer layout of Tom Robinson which was also on the Toy Train Revue Reboot part 3. Finally Joe talks about Carl Tuveson�s Hi-Rail layout which was previously used on World Class Hi-Rail layouts part 2 from 2010 or 2011. While the case says 65 minutes, the main disc itself is actually 77 minutes.

Overall, this is a really good clip show chronicling the present day stories of American Flyer in Prewar standard and 3/16 O Gauges, Postwar S Gauge, and Modern Era S Gauge.
