Toy Train History: In a 1978 interview, speaking of trains, Louis H Hertz said: It's a bad mistake to try and look at the development of train collecting over the last decades as if it had existed in a vacuum. You have to put it into the context of the whole contemporary scene; Social, Moral, Financial, and so on to really start to understand it. You are looking at a Well Put Together Wood and Motor Assembly Antique Pre WWI Gauge 2 Locomotive 2-2-0 Chassis Which is Most Likely a One Of A Kind Piece.The Ajax Motor, Over 100 Years Old, is a Manufactured Motor From the Pre WWI Era. The 2 Ornate Driver Wheels with 4 Large Circular Holes May or May Not be Manufactured (Similar to #2331 Wheels by Voltamp). The Eyelets on Each End of the Chassis could be used as Couplings for Trailing Cars. The Frame is Made of Brass or a Brass-like Material and Wood.
