Memorabilia- American Flyer

I have a manual (instruction booklet) entitled " Instructions for
Assembling and Operating American Flyer 3/16" Scale Trains and
Equipment". It was dveloped at the Gilbert Hall of Science and is the
copyright date is: 1947.
Question: is it worth anything to collectors/enthusiasts? Thanks in

It sounds like it obviously would be. Take a look at Ebay and see if you can find similar items. Probably under ''O'' scale. If you want to test the market, put it on Ebay with a high reserve and see how high the bids go.

Yes it's worth something, but not too much. The similar Lionel document from 1947 is listed in Greenberg's guide at between $4 and $10 depending on condition. Fewer AF booklets would have been produced, but the AF market is much smaller, so I'd expect similar prices for yours. I have a 1947 copy in my collection (yellow cover printed in red, 48 pages) which I was given by a local train dealer who felt there was no demand for it amongst all his customers. GQ

Make that under "S-scale". Something like these?
