HC&M: Holgate #1212 "Activity Train" in box, transitional

Collections Online->Antiques ->Toys ->Holgate

Name Holgate #1212 "Activity Train" in box, transitional

Catalog ID HCM4504
Year circa 1945-1946
Description Very little wear to train or box. A single ring (likely blue) is missing, otherwise complete.

Appears to be nearly identical to Holgate #1212 Activity Train with box, with the only difference being only the 3-peg car has wooden axles on this one. The rest have steel axles.

I would date this to 1945-1946, based on the transition from the original wartime wooden axles to steel.
