A.F. Product Gallery: Track: #28

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:28
Road Name:Track Ballast
Year Introduced:1950
#28 Track Ballast was produced only in 1950 in one variation. The white paper bag (turned yellow with age) contains 1/2 pound of finely-ground gray granules which were ground to 1/64" scale (see sample on sheet in the photo). It is likely that Gilbert used the Paxton Company to produce #28, because in 1949 and 1950 Gilbert used the Paxton company to manufacture #21 Grass, #22 Gravel, and #23 Coal.
