A&P Wood-sided Reefer (American Flyer)

Atlantic Division announces an American Flyer A&P Wood-sided Reefer

In the early 20th Century, “Billboard Reefers” were a common sight on the rails as companies advertised their wares on the sides of these ice-cooled rail cars. Featuring new tooling and colorful graphics, this car is sure to brighten your layout as well!  These cars are expected to be delivered from Lionel in August 2017.

At one time, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, better known as A&P, was the largest retailer in the world. After 156 years in the food/grocery business, A&P closed its last grocery store in 2015.

The car above is a reproduction of the prototype that rode the rails for the Great American Refrigerator Express (G.A.R.E.), carry cans of milk for A&P.  It is one of the first cars produced by Lionel using all new tooling for the wood-sided reefers bearing the American Flyer name.  It features die-cast metal trucks, operating couplers, metal frame and plastic body.

The car is priced at $52.99, plus plus shipping (free Local pickup available). This A&P car is being offered exclusively to TCA members.  To purchase your car(s) online, use the Shop menu option at the top of this page or click HERE. You may also download an order form from the FORMS section of this site, under Merchandise.  The direct address of the shopping page is: Pay by check or use Paypal. These cars are being produced in a limited quantity, so order yours today.

Note: The A&P cars are being produced with six (6) different car numbers, (733-738). If you order multiple cars, we will ship different car numbers, unless other requested. If you would like particular numbers, please add the number(s) to the notes section of your order.


We’re Back Online…

As you are probably already aware, the Atlantic Division website ( has been down for the past several weeks.  This was caused by a corruption to the website’s files that occurred when an automatic update was installed.

While we tried in vain to determine what caused the site to crash, we decided to take a little extra time to move the site to a new hosting company.  The previous host was dreadfully slooooowww (we often waited up to a full minute between screens while trying to make changes to the site).  You will experience much faster response times with our new host.

It will take a week or more to completely rebuild the site with all of the features that were here previously, plus some new stuff we’ve been waiting to add.  We sincerely apologize for the long outage of the site, but we think you will be pleased with the end result.

Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday season.
