I am active in Buying and Selling all types of train up to 1969, The first American made electric toy train was actually produced by Carlisle and Fitch. Most people think the first electric toy trains were made By Lionel, but Lionel did not start production until about 1900, while Carlisle and Fitch made them as early as 1895 and they were powered by a crude battery system that used glass jars, lead rods and bottles of acid. The track was actually wound up coils of metal that fit into slot cut into the railroad ties. The most common set was a coal train set that had a locomotive followed by 3 or 4 coal cars.

Here is MetalCraft Sunshine Bisciut truck, Metalcraft was in busines for a short period of time compared to other toy manufactures of the period like Buddy L, Tonka Toys, Marx and others. One of the notable points about the Metalcraft


Trucks was the terrific graphice they applied to thier trucks, few manufactures captured the feel of the period as well as Metalcraft toys. Another terrific Metalcraft toy is this Pure Oil Airplane . Examples of this Airplane are tough to find in good condition.
