Toy Train Layout: American Flyer Reverse Loop Layout

This is a new American Flyer 9 X 5 layout. It has three connected loops and the inner loop can be used as a reverse loop. The layout is light and portable. It has no legs and simply sits on the ping pong table. Engines run on DC. Engines are American Flyer, American Models, and S-Helper. The loops are isolated and the polarity of each loop is independently controlled by DPDT (center off) switches.

Question by colts_rock_1: how do you hook lionel pennsylvania flyer train tracks up to the transformer where you control it .?
i lost the directions i have the cord to connect the two but i dont know how

Best answer:

Answer by Dilbert
It should be obvious from the cord. Does it any bare wires, or just connectors? If it just has connectors, they aren’t likely to fit the wrong way, so you just connect them whatever way they fit, and it should work fine. If it has any bare wires, there should be screw terminals or post terminals for them. You just loosen those, wrap the bare end of the wire, and tighten. You’re really not likely to get it wrong, so just try it, how it looks like it ought to go, and see if it works.

Joe runs some American Flyer trains

These video snipps were taken in May 2008 on the layout of my dad, Joe Schauer. He has a huge American Flyer / S gauge layout, but also dabbles in HO and Lionel and some G scale too. The first table models Stone Creek and St. Charles, Va. You may notice the Stone Face Rock! See also: Steam ~ Diesel ~ American Flyer Milk Car
