Dayton floor trolley

I picked this up at an auction a while back and believe it or not, it just came in the mail yesterday!

It is not standard gauge but it is one really nice trolley. All metal, looks like it was mass produced. I really don't know much about it. There's some really old tape on the bottom that says Dayton Schieble Floor Trolley from the 1920's. That could have been someone from an auction house getting creative though.

There's some paint loss on the roof and other side but it is definitely not worth touching. Looks great for its' age. It was definitely never intended for a track but it is large and is one heck of a nice looking model. I'll try to grab more pics of it. If anyone knows anything about it.....
