This set was released in 1935 as a bell-ringing wind-up steam circus train. The engine has not been tested on a track but when wound the wheels do move and the bell rings.The on/off switch also works. The headlight bulb and windup key are original. But unfortunately the light doesn't work as these batteries are usually dead and are not available for replacement anywhere. The two rail track is original and correct to the set.
1508 Commodore Vanderbilt Jr wind-up locomotive. 1509 Stoker tender with Mickey fireman figure.
Featuring many Disney characters including Horace Horsecollar, Clarabelle Clown, Mickey, Minnie and others. Featuring The Three Little Pigs, Donald Duck, and Mickey and Minnie. With an elephant among other animals as well as Mickey and Minnie.
This engine is a wind-up with a bell that clangs as it goes around the track. The metal body shows wear and scratches.
The tender has nice lithography. The fireman Mickey figure shows some wear as pictured, but he is complete and in place.The stoker device works, as you can push it and make Mickey shovel the make believe coal. When in operation the stocker lever hits the ties and makes Mickey seemingly shoveling coal. The Diner, 1536 Calliope Band and the 1536 Animal Car all look nice on all sides as shown with the lithography consistent all around. As most of these cars have at least one side or the tops faded.
