American Machine and Foundry (AMF)


Vast US conglomorate which began life in 1900 manufacturing cigarette machines, and expanded over the years to manufacture leisure goods including toy trains, bowling equipment, nuclear reactors, bicycles, Harley Davidson motorcycles, scuba equipment, golf clubs and much more.

AMF produced a monorail, and HitchnSwitch, the US version of the British Tri-ang Big Big Train Sets. For the full story of the Big Big, Novo and AMF systems, with numerous illustrations, please see Dave McCarthy's Big Big Train web site.
