Rare toys from 1920s and 1930s on display at Railroad Museum

Perfect for train enthusiasts, rail fans, children and the young-of-heart of all ages, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum have deemed August as “Toy Train Month,” an annual celebration that focuses on the crowd-favorite Thomas W. Sefton Gallery and “Small Wonders: The Magic of Toy Trains” exhibit.

From the website: The special items added to the exhibit will include a Model T dump truck, lumber truck, cement mixer, toy boat, toy airplane complete with its hangar, and a four-motor “air cruiser.” With a few exceptions, these collectibles were manufactured in the late 1920s and early 1930s which are considered the classic years of Buddy “L.”  Plus, one very rare item — a late 1920s vintage Buddy “L” coach (bus) with gold gilding — will be on display for one month only to protect it from fading.”
