Rare Harris Cast Iron Royal Blue Line Floor Train w/ B & O Engine
Here is a cool looking piece. I love these cast iron floor trains, and this one is spectacular to see in person. This set was called The "Royal Blue Line" Express. Made by The Harris Toy Company in 1903. This set includes the Cast Iron black 4-4-0 B & O Locomotive & No. 917 Tender, pulling a 1193 New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore & Washington Royal Blue Line Baggage Car (with fancy lettering), and a 1192 Passenger car, both with red orange roof and maroon on clerestory, blue bodies, eight wheels. The entire set measures a large 52-1/2" long. Each Passenger Car is 16-1/2" long. Condition is very good for this early train. Other than some early paint wear I see that the engine has a soldered repair to the back platform (see pics). And a small repair to front left side of the cow catcher. This is a great piece, surely to be the focal point of any collection - don't miss. Thanks.
