1958 New in box
This locomotive is equipped with “Magne-Traction” which means that its driving wheels are magnetized by powerful Alnico magnets inserted in the driving axles in order to grip the track and enable the locomotive to pull heavier loads and climb steeper grades without slipping on the track. Be careful not to let pins, paperclips, carpet tacks or other small iron objects come in contact with the locomotive or they will be attracted to the wheels, gears, or axles and interfere with the action of the locomotive. NOTE: “Magne-Traction” is not effective on aluminum, brass or other non-magnetic rails. The locomotive also includes two traction tires, which will improve traction on both magnetic and non-magnetic rails.
