Road Number:962
Year Introduced:1954
The #962R AFL Hamilton Vista Dome Car was produced from 1954 through 1958 with a satin silver painted finish over a black body and a Red Color Band. The 962R has two variations. The first has a metal nameplate that was used in the models from 1954 through 1956. The second produced in 1957 and 1958 has no metal nameplates as "962 HAMILTON 960" is stamped directly on to the car body.

Manufacturer ID:962S
Category:Passenger Cars (dome)
Road Name:American Flyer Lines
Road Number:962
Year Introduced:1954
The 962S was produced in 1954 in three variations. The first variation (shown in the photo) is painted silver over either a white or a black plastic shell (in this case it is a black shell). The second variation is painted silver over a chrome shell, most likely old stock from the 1953 product line. The third variation, which is the rarest of all three, is painted silver over a black shell. That particular car is a factory modification of the 1952 #502 Baggage Car. The word "PULLMAN" was painted over and that area of the car was re-lettered as "AMERICAN FLYER LINES". The #500 nameplate was turned over and the backside of the nameplate was marked "962 HAMILTON 962". Finally, the link couplers were converted to knuckle couplers all of which makes this car unique.
