EXCELLENT DETAILED PART LISTS,ENGINE AND TENDER EXPLODED VIEWS,INCLUDES LOCOMOTIVE AND TENDER IDENTIFICATION,FEATURES,DATES OF MFG,AC/DC SPECIFICATIONS,WIRING DIAGRAMS(ENGINE AND TENDER)EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO REPAIR AND MAINTAIN YOUR AMERICAN FLYER ENGINE AND OPERATING CARS AND ACCESSORIES,FOR MANY MORE YEARS TO COME,WELL WORTH THE COST!!!!NOTE:THIS BOOK IS NOT AUTHORIZED NOR APPROVED BY AMERICAN FLYEROR BY THE A.C. GILBERT CO. OR THERE SECCESSORS.
It is a wealth of information for trouble shooting, installing, and operating all American Flyer trains and accessories. I particularly like the detailed part list for each item.
Has almost everything on American Flyer including steam engines, diesel engines, accessories, transformers, switches. Easy to read, several diagrams for repair work.
It lacks some vital information, particularly in the repair areas. It gives almost no information on the 342 however it gives info on the 342DC and the 342AC. Most related info on the 342 is listed under the 343 and even that is sketchy. The book seems somewhat disorganized and in no way can be considered a serious repair manual with the the possible exception of peripheral cars (dining cars, track repair cars etc.).
The most clearest, best lasting quality of all the American Flyer Manuals I have. Well printed and incorporates original drawings and other items exactly as the original Gilbert publications and instruction sheets.
