(red unit)


Miniature Train & Railroad Co. E10 stream-liner   #32 circa 1947 engine, 4 coaches , observation, circle or 10" track, and step down transformers.  The E10 was designed for running in the major department stores  during the Christmas and Easter holiday seasons 1936- 1970's   millions of children rode these trains.  MT&RC ( later MTC) only leased the trains till Allan Herschell sold off the the complete leasing business and the 36  E 10 trains.  The E 10 has a DC 32 volt motor  drawing current from the track  just like model trains  with a step down transformer  (two included 110 and 220 volt) . The train has always been stored inside .  Train is complete with trucks, windows frames, MTC wing casting, observation drum head , etc .  There are 8 sections of track making about a 20' diameter circle in 10"   steel T rail with wood ties. I'll include 4 MTC G12 straights which can be used by stripping the rail and adding new wood ties.   

The locomotive is one of the few surviving with original electric motor intact (many E10 were later modified for gas motors). So if you want the perfect indoor railroad to impress the world with and give the kids a ride with here you go !  Or perhaps set it up at the holidays  in commercial service as it was  for many years several million kids can not be wrong.
