NaBloPoMo – Trains – The Lafayette

Yet another Bachmann historical train. This one is the Lafayette built by the Norris Locomotive Works in 1837.  It was possibly the first standardize production locomotive in the world.  Several that followed were very similar.

Anyhow,  my model is one of the newer runs.  It was made in China and has the EZ Track and newer style controller.  I bought it a few years ago as NOS.  For some reason, I had never taken it out of the box until tonight.  Usually I run my trains.  So this set is complete with train, controller etc.  The tracks and controllers on my other two Bachmann historical sets are mixed in with the general train supplies.

The England,  an export locomotive very similar to the Lafayette:

    I love the coal car on this one. It is interesting to me to think about all the people involved in inventing, and actually getting these trains built. So many things happening so fast. Sort of like today with our i-Stuff!
