Over 1200 instruction sheets, books and variations.

Many Erector Books and sheets

Many of these are quite rare and sell for more than this DVD

These are by no way complete.

This is available now on DVD ONLY . It has gotten too large for Cd's

Recorded in Adobe "PDF" format for easy viewing or printing

DVD has 8054 Adobe pages

There are no other listings on Ebay like this DVD.You can only get it here.

For the price, this can't be beat. It would cost you over $1000 for all of these if you can even find them.

These instruction sheets all begin with the letter "M". They include instructions for American Flyer: S, HO and O gauges, plus labels, service station lists, some parts breakdowns for engines, other items like Chemistry books, Erector books and other items with no numbers.

Did you know that most instruction sheets for trains are actually wiring diagrams for wiring accessories from the track to the transformer? This can be invaluable if you are not familiar with the wiring. Some accessories get rather complicated.

This is an incomplete compilation of instruction sheets and books. There are over 7000 of these and this listing will never be completed. There are 3 indexes to look up the items you want to view. These instructions were included with American Flyer Trains, Chemistry sets, Airplanes, Slot cars, Erector sets, Microscope sets and any other item that Gilbert sold.

Included are books on Trains, Chemistry, Glass blowing, Electricity, Puzzles and tricks, Microscopes, Physics and any other item that Gilbert made that has an "M" number on it. These are all over 50 years old, some are over 70 years old and some are almost 100 years old.

Included are instructions for items like the log loader, water tanks, coal loader, billboards, action cars, engines, talking stations, stock yard, Erector sets, HO trains, O gauge trains, Pikemaster and many others.

This DVD is not like other CD's or DVD's on Ebay. It does not contain histories of railroads or other things. It has only A.C . Gilbert instruction sheets and Gilbert related items.
