DE WITT CLINTON - HO SCALE LOCOMOTIVE, TENDER, 3 COACHES - - PLUS TRACK AND TRANSFORMER, ALL NEW IN ORIGINAL BOX --- (Sorry SOLD) The DeWitt Clinton was one of America's Earliest Trains. In fact it was only the 3rd Steam-Operated Train. There is a full operating replica of this train, complete with cars in the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan.

This set is an operating HO Scale Authentic Replica of the 1831 Locomotive and Tender, in its original box. The set also includes three of the delightful stagecoach passenger cars, a 47" x 38" oval of Nickel Silver E-Z track, Plug-In Terminal Rerailer Track, Power Pack and Instructions. I find the exceptional detailing of these tiny trains incredible. It has nickel silver wheels, and the minute detailing is simply unbelievable.

This item is not antique or vintage itself. However, it is such a wonderful recreation of days gone by that we felt it deserved a place on our site. The DeWitt Clinton replicas were produced by Bachmann Industries, of Philadelphia. Bachmann offered both the Locomotive and Tender, (we actually have one of those listed on our site as well), and this full Electric Train set, their Item Number 00641 which includes track, coaches, a power pack, etc. I believe the full set may still be offered; however I have not seen the Locomotive / Tender only set before.

The DeWitt Clinton was a truly unique type of train. The passenger coaches were actually standard stagecoaches, mounted on wheels to run on the railroad tracks. It was named after the father of the Erie Canal and was only the third public carrier to operate under steam in America. In August of 1831, it made the trip from Albany to Schenectady in 46 minutes.

I do not believe this Locomotive set has ever been out of the original box, except for my photographing. It is still in all of its original packing and has the accompanying paperwork. The box is in nearly new condition, with some minimal corner damage. I have not set this up or attempted to run this train; however, being new and unused, I feel confident that it is in good working order.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible. Because items we carry are vintage to antique, they are sold in "as is" condition.
