American Flyer Electromatic Crane 583 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 Crane 583 Installation instructions.
There were two 583 Crane Accessories produced. The 583 Crane was a one button accessory while the 583A was a two button. When using the one button controller the locomotive would switch directions with each push of the button. The 583A version with the two button controller enabled the toy train operator to pause the train, operate the crane, and then continue on in the original direction.
