American Flyer Automatic Uncoupler 694 Instructions
These are the installation instructions furnished by the A. C. Gilbert Co. to customers to aid them in the installation and operation of American Flyer equipment. Specifically, this bulletin is for the American Flyer Automatic Coupler 694 installation instructions.
American Flyer produced four primary types of couplers over the year and had variations among them. Unlike the Lionel magnetic uncouplers that emerged in later years, the Gilbert American Flyer couplers were mechanical in nature. The uncoupler mechanism was connected to the transformer and had a remote operating button that could be pushed to cause the train to disconnect from the box car.
