1939-1940 New York World's Fair Tram with engine, driver and 1 car made by Arcade Toy Co. The engine has 2 decals both picturing the greyhound jumping over the Trylon and Perisphere with "Greyhound" written above. Next to the decal is "New York World's Fair". On the back of the engine is a decal ""An Arcade Toy". There is one car with an orange and blue canopy. The seats are orange and the outside is blue with silver sides. This toy is a replica of the tram that took people around the fair grounds. Size: 7 1/2" long by 1 3/4" wide by 2 3/16" tall. Condition: Very Fine. The decals on the side of the engine are almost complete (this is the most important part and usually these are damaged). The engine has some paint loss where the orange meets the blue on the top. The roof is a little faded. (This toy was originally sold with 1 or 3 cars).
