A.F. Product Gallery: Track: #697

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:697
Road Name:Track Trip
Year Introduced:1950
The #697 Track trip was offered from 1950 through 1954 in only one variation. While it was sold separately, it often came with accessories such as the #592 and #592A Crossing Gates, and the #761 Semaphore. The #697 has a raised part on the base that locks onto the rail. When the swivel clip is engaged on the unit, the large circular sheet metal actuating plate with a half-round notch and an eight-point "star" wheel (which is used to adjust the spring tension of the electrical contact) operates the accessory.
