These were a special run done by Downs for the South Jersey S Gaugers club. Downs used the last remaining A.C. Gilbert American Flyer flat cars in stock, which were painted and lettered for the PRR. These were completed right before Russ Downs sold the company. Thirty cars were produced, with three Army Jeeps on each. Club members painted the Jeeps. Six of the flat cars were autographed by Russ, and are used as special club member recognition awards within the SJSG club.
