Gilbert American Flyer Engines For Sale
(last updated June 26, 2009)

I am helping a lady sell her late father's collection on behalf of her mother.  She's in no rush to sell so you can buy things in batches over the coming months.  Her primary interest is that they go to people who will appreciate them as much as her father did.  The whole collection has been kept in an air conditioned outbuilding with a dehumidifier.

This page lists the used Gilbert American Flyer engines in the collection.  She's still working to complete the list and to provide pictures.  I have only just begun to upload those pictures.  If you're interested, check back often!  If you see some things you might be interested in, email me to request pictures. There are also nine boxes of track.

I don't have any of the engines shown on this page; these are pictures she sent me.  If you are interested in any of these items, email me at and I will have her ship them to me so I can verify condition and we'll negotiate prices that are fair to both you and the widow.  Please include your address so I can calculate shipping charges and send you an invoice with the total.

In some cases, I show 2008 Greenberg book values for reference purposes, but these should not be interpreted as asking prices. Make an offer she can't refuse!  Email me:  Please include your address so we can calculate shipping charges and send you an invoice with the total.

Very few of these used Gilbert items are of collector quality (TCA C-7 and above).  Some are what I call nice operator quality (C-6), but most are C-5, and some are of lower quality ("well-weathered").  This web page will provide TCA ratings as they become available.

Separate pages show:

- about 100 of the recent
American Flyer engines and cars made by Lionel.  She and her mother are almost certain that none of these items have ever been out of the box.

- hundreds of used Gilbert Flyer items in the collection: engines (this page),
freight cars, passenger cars, and accessories.  There are also nine boxes of track, roadbed, and switches.  She's still working on the list and pictures of those.  I have only just begun to upload those pictures; if you're interested, check back often!

- a list (with pictures) of freight cars in the collection made by
other manufacturers: American Models, Marx, Lionel, and Littletown.

Here are some pictures of used Gilbert Flyer engines from the collection.
