American Freedom Train Advertising
Lionel was set
to triple their TV advertising in 1975. This brochure featured the
national TV spot for the American Freedom Train HO models.
The models shown
are clearly prototypes -- note the showcase car in the 4th pane
has only one star and the steam locomotive flying by in the 5th
pane has a proposed paint scheme that was ultimately dropped.
Note that the
information about the AFT commercial has been greatly enlarged relative
to the size of the brochure cover.
the brochure also contained info about a general "Lionel"
commercial aimed at "the emerging female market".
