In 1901 Joshua Lionel Cohen began production of 2 7/8 " gauge two rail train equipment. The first train included a B & O locomotive, a gondola, a crane, and a Metropolitan Express car.The first catalog in 1903 included a Baltimore and Ohio R.R. locomotive. This is one of those locomotives. This locomotive is all original and never restored and is in VERY GOOD condition. This is not a reproduction.Good luck on your bidding. March 14th I added another picture so you see both sides and both ends.You should also know that I've never cleaned it; It is still dusty and grimy, the way I bought it. Shipping is free.
