I have been working on a Jacrim Tom Thumb wooden train that I acquired recently. The wooden train was manufactured sometime between 1929 and 1934. A similar train that is only two cars and an engine appears in a 1931 advertisement. The train has four cars and an engine and an overall length of five feet. One of the cars had been painted black and I have successfully removed the black paint. It is now the original green. Paint removal is difficult and usually not successful but I was lucky the black paint was water based. Randy’s Toy Shop is going to fabricate new connector hooks for the cars as there is only one of the originals left. When it is done I will have a truly unique, because it is complete, and rare Jacrim Tom Thumb train to enjoy.
