Below an 1895 Wilkins "Floor" Train, which was featured in the last auction (#55) AT OUR LOCAL SERIOUSTOYZ.COM. The description is as follows: "Cast Iron Floor Train", 1895, Wilkins, o/a length is 54", individual cars are 16”; large, heavy set (each car weighs about 7 lbs); bell professionally replaced, but no breaks or repairs; tender has paint flakes on 1 side, o/w beautiful paint o/a w/ car names still visible;, o/a C8+; a spectacular example of the largest cast iron train made by Wilkins"

Yep. Spectacular!
