In the last couple of years, I had acquired an American Flyer 4-4-2 Atlantic (# 300 Reading) that needed some work. This particular model was a 1940's vintage S gauge locomotive that had a broken link pin coupler, broken running gear on the right side and a heavy layer of grime.
After consultation with the experts and a visit to the parts depot (Art's Parts) I can report that the 4-4-2 is back to running order. I'm assembling and cleaning a short train of vintage cars to show at the Carillon Rail Fest, Dayton, Ohio, June 35 and 26th. For more information on railfest click here.
