HC&M: Holgate #1212 Activity Train (late/Type III?)

Collections Online->Antiques ->Toys ->Holgate

Name Holgate #1212 Activity Train (late/Type III?)

Catalog ID HCM4050
Year circa 1953
Description This is the last model (1952-1953) of the #1212 Activity Train, with two engineers and no roof. Missing pull-string, but in excellent condition and complete otherwise. Appears incomplete in photos due to incorrect assembly. Locomotive has the late rectangular "holgate" decal (dt6).

I'm not sure where I got the 1952-1953 time range on this. Need to verify. I don't see it in the 1953 catalog. Compare to Holgate #1212 "Activity Train", late.
