This is a toy steam engine that I built for my son Charlie about 25 years ago. He might have been about 3 years old at the time. Charlie was a rough little boy and I guess that he dropped it and broke the cow catcher off. I don’t have it here with me right now but I would guess that it is about 14×9 x 7. It sits on top of an antique plantation desk in our den and it is one of our prized possessions.

Was he a helluva”train”wreck. Sorry had to be said. Great looking train, it definitely stood the test of time and Charlie.
