This vintage listing for a toy train is from the 1916 Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogue. This set came with a red engine and tender and cost $1.00. A tender is a rail car that carries wood, coal or oil and water to keep the locomotive running for long distances (I had to look that up). Here is a black and white clip art version of the image from the listing. Click on images to enlarge.
