American Flyer K335 Northerner

This is American Flyer’s largest steam engine. Made in 1952 only, the K in K335 refers to the knuckle coupler. Earlier Northerners - 332, 332AC and 332DC had link and pin couplers.

This loco is also called the Challenger because Flyer referred to it as the Northerner and as the Challenger in their catalogs.

This is the most common version of American Flyer’s popular 0-8-0 switcher. The DC in 342DC means it doesn’t have a reverse unit and was wired for DC operation.

This was made between 1946 and 1952. The 342DC shown above is the last one from 1952.
