The Kilgore Manufacturing Company originated in Westerville, Ohio and started to produce cast iron toys circa 1928. Offered today is a lot of 4 Kilgore train cars, which include the engine, caboose, tanker, and what we think is the coal car.
Paint is mostly gone and is replaced with some nice rust patina. All 4 seem to come from the same set due to its blue paint. Just two of them show the blue paint a bit more clearly – the coal car and the caboose.
They are offered today with the box that they came with – which seems it has vintage in itself. Please note this is not the original box for the toys. Whoever stored these toys, clearly used a vintage carton box to put them away. We offer them as found with no cleaning or repairs, and in the box they were originally acquired. Please verify the photographs for their condition and let us know if you have any questions.
