We present for your consideration a “Masudaya” Modern Toys Railway Electric Train set in the original box.  This actually is a wind up motor driven train, it is not electric.  The toy is, however, modeled after a diesel electric train engine, hence the electric name.  The bottom of the engine is stamped only with the word JAPAN and given the styling of the engine we would date the toy to the late 1950’s or early 1960’s.  Included are the original four pieces of track allowing for the construction of an approximately 12” diameter circle.  There is some minor corrosion on the track. The train’s wind up motor is functioning and the litho is in outstanding condition, but some of the gold color is missing on the wheels.  The engine is decorated with different birds on the roof and one dove on each side.  The box is complete with the insert and the cover has nice bold colors.  The box is in great shape and without any serious issues only one small split in the lid just above the MT logo at the upper left hand corner.  The outside dimensions of the box are 9 ¾” x 4 ½” x 1½”.  The train measures 4 1/8” by about 2” tall, by 1 ¾” including the key, and the space between the tracks is 7/8”.  We could not find another example of this toy during our research so if you collect Japanese tin you might want to take it with you.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR BEST DESCRIPTION.
