"Archaic" These are vintage HO trains. That set #1 was the first train set this company HObbyline produced.
 
HObbyline's Set #2 is also from 1953 and has no name. The catalog for 1953 didn't even show a photo of the set . It just gave a description. It was a PRR freight set. It was powered by a Twin set of Alco FA-1's pulling 2 gondolas, a flat car, two boxcars and a PRR caboose. It came with a circle of HObbylines own sectional track called Jiffy track.
frank.

Well, here is something Archaic. posting a photo in another on-line site, getting a link from that site and posting the link here is necessary to provide a photo of mine for use in this site. That method was used 30 years ago to posting a photo in that way. Yes! That's an archaic method to be sure. Thanks for the word HO Scale MILW.
 
Wish I had one of those in my collection. I notice the couplers. Look alot like the Atlas O-scale couplers from the late 1970s.
