Gilbert American Flyer S Gauge Repair and Operating

FOURTH EDITION!!! This 4th Edition is a completely revised book. Please consider this and not the earlier 3rd Edition. It is 200 pages longer with all the information of the highly reviewed 3rd Edition.----Tom Barker, Author.   Over the past six years I have provided the 3rd Editions of my Gilbert American Flyer Operating and Repair Guide books. Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 have been declared excellent helpers for those engaged in the repair and operation of these fine trains. More and more new AF enthusiasts are joining the thousands of experienced Gilbert American Flyer operators and collectors as evidenced by the growing numbers in the Facebook Groups. In conjunction with these groups I have discovered many new ideas that have been lingering around regarding the repair and operation of these fine trains and accessories. Some topics are common ideas and are just sitting around in the ordinary vernacular (like using a hair dryer to flex balky plastic engine shells). Neophytes need to have a reference beyond my original Guides to document many of these "everybody knows" AF topics. My second Volume approached that goal, but there are still many more ideas to expand the newbies' knowledge. The Second Volume also had an extensive Index for quick reference to the many topics in both...

Bunker Hill (The Thomas Fleming

"Written with skill and suspense, it is an inspiring story that Americans can read with pride." - Chicago TribuneHere, from New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming, is the story of the June day in 1775 that made the American Revolution inevitable.Bunker Hill brings to life the stories of the men on both sides who fought on steep, Boston slopes in the blazing heat of June and dispels the myths and distortions that have long clouded the battle. It shows how closely and tragically intertwined were the lives of men and women who from this day would call themselves either British or American.The brother of General William Howe, the British commander, had died in Colonel Israel Putnam’s arms near Fort Ticonderoga. Colonel William Prescott had fought beside General William Howe at the siege of Louisburg and had been offered a commission in the Royal Army for his valor. Now, only fifteen years after their joint victories as comrades in arms, Prescott and Putnam steadied their raw American troops with harsh advice to withhold their fire on the advancing British ranks until "you can see their buttons," or "the whites of their eyes."After the British forces came ashore, the battle opened with a deftly launched flanking movement by the British right. John Stark arrived with his...
