Static Displays Pre War Displays

Static displays were produced by the Gilbert factory and sold to dealers for use in displaying American Flyer trains. Although some displays were specialty items designed for a particular setting, many were marketed through the same display catalogs as the display layouts.  Generally, they were very low priced or even offered free with product purchases.
