MADE for limited high-end sets 60 years ago. What you see hereis exactly what it says: An Electronic Whistle Control for American Flyer. There was No Part Number assigned to this Electronic Whistle Controller. It was made in 1950 Only and used with Santa Fe D iesels with a Bakelite Speaker in the B-unit and some big 334DC Union Pacific Steam Engines , which used the same Bakelite Speaker.

Part of the top cover labeling says “A.C. or D.C.”

(I do not know what that means for this unit)

It was not catalogued or available for separate sale.

The original gray power cord was missing so I replaced it with a new one. Photos show what the inside looks like. The body shell is steel and has minor typical paint scuffs. However it is clean and has NO rust.

PLEASE NOTE: YES, THE TUBE LIGHTS UP! I plugged the new cord in and the tube lit up instantly. Otherwise, this vintage unit being sold as-is. The Bakelite control handle twists smoooothly and easily.

Dimensions are : 5.5 inches long x 4.5 inches high x 4.5 inches deep.
