Henry Wallwork & Co. Cast Iron Train
Our cast iron toy was made in Manchester, England and an unusual find. It is pending at the moment, but we wanted to share photos.
This H. Wallworks and Company foundry train was tabled 1892 and documented in Ralston’s book of cast Iron Floor Trains.
Ralston notes typical British style with “no cowcatchers on the locomotive, or large headlights in front of the smokestacks.”
