The 10 1/2 Train Set
This set was produced from 1938 to 1942. After WWII the pictures for the models from the set still appeared in the manual for my 1947 4 1/2 set. I spent many hours looking at the pictures and wishing to build the models.
When I got the set it had a transformer but the slot for the transformer is not large enough. Maybe this is a transition set.
Coaling Station. The motor drives a belt of cardboard coal buckets.
The Traveling Crane could be built with the 9 1/2 set. The 10 1/2 set built about a half dozen train cars.
Turntable and Roundhouse. The mix of trains and construction gave this set an irresistible appeal.
