American Flyer PA-1

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:405
Road Name:American Flyer
Year Introduced:1952
The 1952 Silver Streak PA has three variations none of which has the number printed on the unit. The rarest of all has a yellow stripe on the side. Originally the Silver Streak was intended to be produced as a Burlington Route locomotive as indicated by the cover of the 1952 Advance Catalog #D1667. Apparently, the deal between the CB&Q and Gilbert broke down late in the game so the road name was changed to the "Silver Streak".
