This kit enabled the modeler to convert an A.C. Gilbert American Flyer locomotive to "scale". The kit contained replacement wheels/axles for tender, pilot, and trailing trucks as well as scale drivers and axles. The axles had "D"-shaped ends, and the zamac driver centers had "D"-shaped openings to match. This design assured proper quartering. The modeler had to remove the AF drivers, axles, and worm gear, then use the reverse procedure to install the scale versions (applied using the jaws of a vice to keep the drivers perpendicular to the axles).
