Highlights From This Catalog

Hearken back to the days of tinplate…a time when toys sparked the imagination of children all over the world. Relive the iconic scene of a family gathered around a Christmas tree watching the electric train run circles around a pile of glimmering packages. For many, tinplate trains, regardless of scale or gauge, call to mind the magical introduction of electricity, which made things like silent movies and radio the primary forms of entertainment.
