Rare Large IVES Cast Iron Cannonball Train Engine Circa. 1893 - WOW!
Here is a wonderful looking toy that you won't see very often. This is the IVES 'Cannonball Train' Engine and Tender that Ives produced in 1893. Then it claimed itself to be the larges train ever made. The Engine itself measures 14-5/8" long. Tender is 9-1/2" long. The Engine is in wonderful condition. The only issue I see is that ia that it is missing a set of front pont wheels. Also, missing its little front bell. The Tender also has great paint, but all its wheels have been repalced with mock-up wooden wheels. I also believe that the rivet in the front has been replaced. Overall, this is an impressive looking set of trains. Don't miss. Thanks.
