This is one of the many trains that Grandpa has in his collection. Curious to know if anyone knows anything about this type and model? Cannot find any information, anywhere. It is heavy die cast and is signed, New One, Tokyo, Japan on the bottom. It is a electric track model with a car behind that states Chicago and Rock Island. Looks like a coal car. Please email me if you would with any useful information. Thanks. Nordie

    There was a whole series of New One Models imported in the late 1950, early 1960s by the Polk Brothers using the name Aristo-Craft. They imported an 0-6-0t through a 4-8-2. The loco and tender bodies were cast zinc alloy. The weakest parts were the siderods and cyclinders which would snap if much pressure was applied. These locos are frequently available on eBay.
