In fact, not until the die-cast GG-1 Electric appeared in 1950 was an O Gauge locomotive equipped with two motors. The development of the 256 in 1924 was a response to the success of the Ives Corporation's wide-gauge products and it's inclusion of the "twin" motors was a gimic that failed to intially offset Ives' development of the first automatic reversing unit that same year. Despite the Ives' innovations, the 256 proved resilient and remained a popular toy train until it's last year in 1930. During its heyday, the locomotive came equipped with both spoked and solid disc wheels but appeared only in orange livery. Making its introduction to the Tinplate Traditions lineup, our No. 256 will sport the same details as the original but in a fit and finish that rivals that of its predecessor. In addition, the locomotive is equipped with two precision flywheel-equipped motors and comes outfitted with the fun and excitement of Proto-Sound 2.0. Finally, unlike the original, the Tinplate Traditions No.
256 will be available in additional colors that make it a fine puller for matching 700 series passenger cars. Stamped Steel Body and Chassis. Metal Wheels, Axles and Gears.
