Dent Cast Iron Train- #152 circa 1900-1905
Here we have a beautiful surviving copy of the #152 loco by Dent. The train is an impressive size as shown by the ruler (over 2 feet in total length) and extremely heavy.
Paint condition is excellent for the age with a minimum of chips and in original condition. There just aren’t many left in this top condition.
The colored cars are especially nice, in the unusual white and orange. Rick Ralston’s book on cast iron trains has this as a 1900 – 1905 production toy; very early in the twentieth century.
