In 1914, Allis-Chalmers, then a manufacturer of heavy mining and mill equipment, decided to enter the growing tractor and farm machinery business. In 1929, their success grew when they changed the colour of Allis-Chalmer tractors from green to the colour of Persian Orange. And, as they say, the rest is history! Allis-Chalmers would go on to become one of the leaders in the tractor industry and pioneer innovations including the first pneumatic tires, the first power-adjustable rims and the first turbocharged tractor to name just a few. Today, these bright orange machines are still in use on America’s farms and throughout the world.
Hawthorne proudly presents the Allis-Chalmers Tractors Express that celebrates these legendary farm machines in a heirloom-quality train that runs on any HO-gauge track.
The train collection begins with the illuminating “Allis-Chalmers Diesel Locomotive.” Subsequent cars—many including removable replica sculptures of these famous tractors and featuring vintage period photography and advertising will follow.
E-Z Track® elevated roadbed creates a 47” x 38” oval—powerpack and speed controller included with Shipment Two.
