Summer Restoration Project Completed
This is the Howard set that I posted about below. It needed some heavy duty soldering repairs, cleaning and almost total repainting. Early American 2" gauge electric trains are the cousins of Standard gauge. They were manufactured from the late 1890s until the early 1920s. Electric toy trains from this period have a certain charm that sets them apart from the glossier classic era trains.
