American Flyer Locomotive 325 Hudson
The American Flyer Locomotive 325 Hudson was made in 1951 and 1952. There were a few variations mainly around the coupler type as Gilbert was transitioning from the screwed on coupler to the krimped on coupler. There were three models that shared the same service manual. All included smoking unit, air chime and whistle components.
