The American Flyer Locomotive 332 Union Pacific Northern was manufactured from 1946 to 1949 and had six versions. There were both AC and DC versions made based on the fact that World War II was taking many of the supplies required to produce AC components. To accommodate this Gilbert produced rectiformers and rectifiers to assist in converting the power types. The engine and tender had piston type smoke and choo-choo units.
