A.F. Product Gallery: Electric Track Trip

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:26670
Road Name:Electric Track Trip
Year Introduced:1957
The #26670 Electric Track Trip produced in 1957 and 1958 has only one variation. In reality the #26670 was not new in 1957. The trip was actually produced in 1955 and 1956 as #670. When Gilbert changed to their new computerized 5-digit intelligent catalog numbering system in 1957, #670 became #26670. In early 1957 Gilbert still had old #670 trips and envelops to aid in the conversion. Gilbert stamped the old "670" envelops with the new catalog number "26670", as can be seen in the photo.
