Flyer Fest West CarsAbout our Club

The purpose of the club is to promote interest, fellowship and cooperation among persons interested in any facet of American Flyer S Gauge Model Railroading, including collecting and operating.  Many of our members also have an interest in other Gilbert products and pre-Gilbert American Flyer.

We were originally founded in 1970 as the East and West Bay S gauge Model Railroad Club.  Today the Golden Gate American Flyer Club is group of American Flyer enthusiasts from all parts of the San Francisco Bay Area.  We also have members in other parts of Northern California and even outside the state.

We have a modular group within our club which displays its modules at various train shows in Northern California.   See our
Facebook page for some photos of our latest presentations at local train shows.

Every three years we sponsor Flyerfest West.  In other years, we coordinate with the Sacramento Valley American Flyer Club's Flyerfest West and the Southern California S-Gaugers, who sponsor S-Fest West.   Both of these take place in the each of the two years between our Flyerfests.

We hold official monthly in person meetings at the homes of our members, most often on Friday night or Saturday afternoon.  Those meetings can also be attended via Zoom.   We also have an additional informal Zoom meeting on the first Sunday evening of the month.   A business meeting is conducted but the meetings also provide a chance to visit and enjoy the layouts of fellow members.  Meetings usually feature a show and tell session and members are encouraged to bring items for sale.  Click on the "Meetings" above for details.
