Before the war, several companies made toy trains in a larger gauge than is available today. This is an American Flyer standard gauge outfit circa 1931 ( 2 1/8" between the rails). To put it in perspective, Lionel today is 1 1/4" and HO is 5/8". Here the cocktail train heads towards rear of the "Back Room".
20 feet later -- approaching destination.
The payload. Do you remember "Reginald Van Gleason's" bar train from the 1950's TV show?
All aboard! Patricia grabs a drink before the train leaves the station.
