Good Morning Fellow Collectors,
This was a flea market find from this weekend. I had never seen a rubber train like this and thought it was an item I wanted to add to my collection of first timers. The engine is made of rubber, although it has hardened over time. All of the wheels are on it and it rolls with no problems. It was made in the USA by ARCOR Safe Play Toys. It appears to be from the 20's or 30's. I have not had time to do any research yet, because I saw the plane that was posted earlier by CAD1949, and wanted to post mine. These items were made by the same company as far as I can tell. Comments are welcomed. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a great day. Thrifty

    Auburn Rubber used the Arcor name from the early 40's to the early 50's. The toys then went to vinyl.

    You don't see the train that often
