No paperwork is included though manual is online via the MTH website.With not a touch of modesty, the 1931 American Flyer catalog introduced the firm's new standard gauge steamer: The magnificent realistic wide gauge Steam type locomotive Model 4696 is a faithful reproduction of the crack B. The faithful design is a striking example of scale reproduction. It is conceded by the most critical to be the finest miniature model ever made.
In fact this description had a lot of truth to it. Of course Flyer, like Lionel with its 400E, ignored the fact that the prototype locomotive had one more set of drivers than the model.But Flyer's fully die-cast steamer with added-on brass parts was arguably better proportioned and more accurately detailed than competitive sheet-metal models from Lionel and Ives. Very, very few do it but enough that I have to impose this crazy requirement.
