Manufacturer ID:23743
Category:M.O.W.
Road Number:23743
Year Introduced:1960
The #23743 was produced from 1960 through 1964 in only one variation. It has an inexpensive motor ink-stamped "JAPAN" that operates on 9 volts. One must limit the power to the unit as many transformers can apply voltages up to 15 volts to the track. The unit came in a Kleer-Pak carton, as shown in the second photo. The miniature driver of the #23743 is the same unit as used on the #779 Barrel Loader. There are very few examples of this model. The very rare unit that has "743" in black lettering on each end of both sides of the unit instead of "23743" has been seen sold for $10,000.

Road Name:American Flyer Lines
Road Number:24561
Year Introduced:1959
The #24561 AFL Industrial Brownhoist Crane was produced from 1959 through 1961 in 5 variations. Two variations were produced in 1959-60, which have knuckle couplers. In 1959 the chassis, cab, and boom were all black plastic. The chassis and the boom were both painted gray while the cab was painted black. The second knuckle coupler variation was probably produced in 1960. It has a gray plastic chassis and boom while the cab is black plastic. The third variation produced in 1961 came with a gray plastic chassis and boom, a black painted cab with Pike-Master trucks and coupler. The remaining two are identical to the third. The differences in these two variations have to do with the original packaging. The one came in a standard red and while box stamped "24569". The second produced in 1965-66 came in an All Aboard box that was also stamped "24569".

The #24569 Industrial Brownhoist Crane Car was produced from 1961 through 1966 and, according to Greenberg, has two variations, however Ted believes there are three. Greenberg states that both variations have an unpainted gray plastic flat car body with Pike-Master trucks and couplers. The two variations listed in Greenberg are one with an unpainted black crane cab while the second variation has a cab that is painted black over either a black or gray plastic cab shell. The version shown in the photo, however, has a flat car body that is painted gray over a black plastic body. The crane car cab is unpainted black plastic.
