The All Aboard Scenic Panel Sets

In 1965 A.C.Gilbert introduced a new concept in model railroading, The American Flyer All Aboard Train Sets. When assembled you had a complete finished layout with scenery. Just put the train on the track and you were ready to go! The sets consisted of prepainted plastic panels with the track and wiring already mounted. By installing the included scenery items such as telephone poles, trees, stop signs and even a tunnel you created a complete train layout. All Aboard Sets came in three different track configurations and could be expanded by adding additional scenic panels. There was even a set of "snow" panels to create a winter scene. Made in 1965 and 1966 All Aboard turned out to be the last train sets made by American Flyer before A.C.Gilbert went out of business in 1967. Today these unique sets are popular with collectors of the "pikemaster" era trains.
