A.F. Product Gallery: Straight & Curved Track

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:700 & 702
Road Name:Straight & Curved Track
Year Introduced:1946
The 10" #700 Straight and #702 Curved Track products are shown with their 1946 American Flyer track boxes. These were produced from 1946 to 1956. The numbers were changed to the new computerized 5-digit number 26700 for straight and 26720 for curved track from 1957 through 1964. The dating of the 700 and 702 track sections to 1946 is verified by noting that the side of the rails are blackened which Gilbert only did in 1946. Photo #2 shows the #700 from above (it also includes a section of HO-scale #380 for comparison).
