The Little Blue Train

 

Early Life

We have no idea, however, we are looking into it. What we do know is that we have put many hours of TLC into this little train and so far the children are loving it. we have had a constant line-up of children at each event...no rest for the driver.

What We Do Know

The engine is 2 cylinder, air cooled and gas powered. It has a 2 speed hydraulic transmission. An external alternator for extra electricity when needed and an air compressor for the whistle, air horn and parking brake (no fake recordings on this train). We also have a real brass bell and a stereo system with speakers in each car. Our train can carry up to 18 children or 12 adults. A unique feature on our train is the moving side rods on the drive wheels and the tandem axle front steering wheels.

We found out the engine is an Onan built in 1986. We have a picture of the train before it's current paint job.
