Briggs & Stratton powered train

Flywheel Forum

| June/Junly 2010

I recently bought this small train engine and would like to restore it.

It is operated by a vertical Briggs & Stratton engine. Inside the black cylinders above the front wheels on each side are two coils.

My question is, was this train homemade or manufactured? Any information would be a big help.
