American Flyer Trains is now owned by Lionel Trains, another brand we offer. The trains used to be a less expensive alternative to the larger-scale electric trains and were called “Chicago Flyer.” In 1918, American Flyer produced an O gauge model of an electric train. They started to sell more wide gauge electric trains in the 1920’s to compete with Lionel Corporation.
Today, Lionel produces S-Gauge products that are based on the original American Flyer designs. They are extremely detailed and proportioned to scale. Lionel also sells AF FasTracks and Power assortments for the American Flyers. Double Play Hobby Consignments offers a large range of trains, including American Flyers. View our selection below.
