I’m new to this group, and I’m hoping to get some help identifying a model train. The story I was told was my great uncle was given this train as a present in the late ’30s, perhaps around the time of the 1939 world’s fair in NYC. In the early '70s it passed to my dad, and in 2008 it passed to me.
When I was a kid, I remember the wheels moving. It used to have a transformer that when attached powered the engine. There are removable screws/pegs that attach to the underside of the engine and secure the engine to the wood platform with the track.
I’ve looked everywhere on both the engine and the tender, but I don’t see any markings. Can someone help me to identify this train?
