Primed Trolley's Getting Ready to Roll!
I absolutely LOVE seeing this. Makes me wish I had the money to buy 16 trolleys. Jim Cohen is getting a whole bunch of these amazing little machines ready for delivery to his lucky customers.
This is a rare sight, just not something we see everyday. This is how they looked in the early part of the 20th Century. All hand made and each trolley is slightly different. All made in Connecticut, USA! I am always amazed that Jim can even let these leave his house! I guess he has to keep the lights on or something.
One thing to think about, Jim and Joe typically can't make enough of these things. I guess if we wanted to gauge our hobby is healthy, that might be one barometer we could use....
