We found this antique 50s circus mini trackless train for sale in a local publication and quickly bought it for the Lakeside Museum. It’s a gas powered rubber tired train that can hold 12 children passengers. It obviously needs a little tlc and paint. This is something I have always wanted for our own children to give them rides up and down our short dead end street. Now it will be grandkids and their friends that get to ride. This train is a copy of the Union Pacific E-8 and E-9 from what I see. Those were made in the early 50s.
