The caption tells you it is AF from 1940 era. Flyer didn't go to 2-rail till after WWII.

My favorite manufacturer is IVES, but they folded in 1930. They did make some magnificent trains though. The copper one is named "The Prosperrity Special".

I used Hirsch's bronze and was well satisfied.

Re: R-( transmission modification from column to top shifter

Years ago I installed a stick tranny in a 52 Packard. I got the tranny out of a scrap 53 Clipper. My cousin cut down a column shift from a Ford in the junkyard and we mounted it sideways on the floor. I also installed a four-barrel manifold and carb on that car and lost the starter switch. The automatic gearshift was still in the car and I had removed the backup lights so I just hooked up the wires to the backup light switch on the column. Turn on the key, shift the column shifter to reverse to start the car and then throw that into Park and shift gears on the floor. My wife took her driving test in that car and the state cop said he should pass her just for getting the car moving. We put many miles on that vehicle.

I've noticed that several Packard owners (like me) have nicknames for their automobile.
Ernie Vitucci refers to his as "Miss Prudence".

I've been calling mine "Best Other" ever since I got several trophies under that heading. Trophies were awarded to Best Ford or Best Chevy and I always fell under Best Other.

The video identifies it as a '56. Poster had a finger check or a BF.

Again(lol) Thanks for the clarification Dave. He would be a good go-to guy because he was fair and responded quickly.
