Miniature Train Company (MTC) E10
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.
Located in Chicago.
