Brass Patterns for Cast Iron Trains
By Rick Ralston, author of Cast Iron Floor Trains
I HAVE ENJOYED my many years of searching for cast iron trains. It has been an exceptional delight to, on rare occasion, come across original factory master patterns. For thousands of copies of toys to be cast in iron, there were few master patterns made. I wish I had information to quantify “few.” I seldom have seen more than one copy of a master pattern.
