My first electric train was an American Flyer! I'll never forget getting up on Christmas morning and finding it under the tree! A little later my Dad fired it up and it went around, and around... It wasn't long before I had a small layout. I used to pour over the American Flyer catalogs and dream of the new trains and accessories I'd like to get. Thanks for the memory.
The only thing missing from that ad is the name of the company. I had a Marx train set with a steam engine that puffed out smoke if you put an oily liquid in the stack.
