Western Coil & Electrical Company Burlington Zephyr

The Western Coil & Electrical Company of Racine, Wisconsin produced sand cast aluminum Burlington Zephyr sets in the 1930's (see the video). Instructions for this train may be found here. The set on this page has metal handrails and window panes applied to the outside of the car bodies. Window panes were included in "DeLuxe" sets only. Barber-Coleman unidirectional motors powered these trains. The vestibules (bellows) between the cars were made from heavy paper.
