A.F. Product Gallery: Manual Switch

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:722
Road Name:Manual Switch
Year Introduced:1946
The Manual Switch was produced from 1946 through 1951, and replaced in 1952 by the 722A with the full base style. Usually sold in pairs, right and left. The turnout position indicators (red/green) were made of plastic. These easily broke off, so the photos show what it looks like. Photos #2 and #3 show the side view of the two turnout positions. There is a hole in the base (on the left side) that was made by a previous owner, and was not part of a new #722.
