Christmas 1914 - My 1st Electric Train

1914 Catalog

1914 Catalog Cut for 1125


Pictured below is Theodore Pruden deTreville (1909-1966), on Christmas day 1914 with his first electric train. It was an Ives 1125 with what appears to be a 129 Saratoga car. "Pruden" as he was called by the family, liked the train so much that it appeared with him in every picture taken that day.  The photos were taken at his grandparents house in Eufaula, AL, who gave him the train. Thanks to John deTreville who sent in the pictures and was kind enough to share the story.
