Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:24833
Category:Passenger Cars (observation)
Road Name:American Flyer Lines
Road Number:24833
Year Introduced:1957
The AFL Washington Observation car #24833 was produced in 1957 and 1958 and again from 1960 through 1962 in two variations. The first variation has "24833" illuminated in the first window. The second variation as shown in the photo has an illuminated "24853" in the first window in place of the "24833". It is apparent that the second variation is a factory error as the window insert used on this variation was the same used on the 1958 #24853 Northern Pacific Observation Car. Could it be this variation was produced in 1958 or was it produced in 1960-62 when Gilbert was attempting to use old inventory of parts?
