For the past 38 years the NASG has produced an American Flyer Commemorative Car that is available for sale to NASG members only. These are limited-production collector cars, typically produced by Lionel. Below is a listing of the ones that are for sale.

The NASG Board of Trustees has authorized the American Flyer Commemorative Car Inventory Reduction Sale, effective January 1, 2020. Please help the NASG with making space on the shelves by buying one or more of the cars listed on this page. Please note the following restrictions:
The sale is as follows:
This page lists the full price, but when added to the online shopping cart, the prices will be reduced as applicable. If you plan to postal-mail your order, please calculate the total sale price based on the total quantity of 2018 or older cars you will be ordering.
Upon thorough review of the NASG's contract with Lionel, we learned that Lionel's requirement that the NASG American Flyer Commemorative Cars be sold only to active NASG members expires after three years of the signing of the contract. So, for all but the 2019 car, the previous restriction of having to be an NASG member has now been lifted from this page.
You can place your order for any of the available cars shown below either by conventional postal mail and including a check or money order (in US dollars drawn against a US bank) for your order total in the envelope, or you can use the convenient online shopping cart (see further below).

The NASG's "American Flyer Commemorative Car" project is coming to an end. How fitting that the last car would be a caboose!
The 2019 AF Commemorative Car caboose was manufactured by Lionel. It has the road number 8119 (to indicate the first and last year of the program). Be sure to click the photos below to see the larger version, because the car has some special markings. The car is available for purchase now. The price shown includes shipping within the continental U.S.; contact Dave (see above) if you are ordering from outside the 48 U.S. states. Active NASG membership required.
The road number is 3618, for the 36th car in the series and the year 2018. The car is a limited-production run of the Lionel American Flyer Gulf Oil single-dome tank car. The black car body is offset by the red company logo and the white reporting mark, road number, and technical details on the car.
The road number is 3617, for the 36th car in the series and the year 2017. The car is a limited-production run of the Lionel American Flyer Gulf Oil single-dome tank car. The black car body is offset by the yellow company logo and the white reporting mark, road number, and technical details on the car.
Road number is 3516, for the 35th car in the series and the year 2016. The car is a Lionel American Flyer Chicago & North Western flat car, that includes 18 pallets of plastic refractories as a load, headed to a steel mill for relining of the soaking pits (or some other industrial usage). Soaking pits were used by steel mills from the 1920s through 1975. Pallets are decorated for the Chicago-based Plibrico Co. Plibrico invented clay-based refractories around the turn of last century and was a major supplier of these materials. Pallets are scale and will be held in place by "heavy duty cargo netting". Additional sets can be ordered, either decorated or undecorated.
Currently, the NASG has this special offer: If you buy two or more extra sets of pallets (any combination of decorated and/or undecorated), the price is $8 per set. This sale will be accounted for in your final shopping cart.
Road number is 3415, for the 34th car in the series and the year 2015. The car is a Lionel American Flyer BNSF waffle-sided box car. We still have a limited number of these cars available, ready for immediate shipping.
In 2006 Lionel produced the General Electric maintenance-of-way Crane Car (right in photo). The crane is actually a very accurate model of the real thing based on engineering drawings found for this car. In 2007 Lionel was commissioned to produce a matching Boom Car (left in photo). Both of these cars are still available in limited quantities, ready for immediate shipping. You can buy each individually, or you can save $7 by buying the pair at the same time.
