The American Flyer No. 779 Oil Drum Loader is one of the more fascinating Gilbert accessories. Featuring continuous action (as long as the oil drums are removed from the destination car and reloaded into the feed ramp), the “fork lift” shuttles back and forth from the loading ramp to the gondola parked on a siding next to the Loader.
This is the service bulletin furnished by the A. C. Gilbert Co. to authorized service stations to aid them in the service and repair of American Flyer equipment. Specifically, this bulletin is for the American Flyer Oil Drum Loader 779.
