Ives Manufacturing Co. was in business 1868-1932. Ives began producing the first "O" gauge trains in the United States to run on sectional track. Although other companies produced electric trains, Ives chose to use clockwork probably because many homes lacked electricity.

Several cars with paint loss especially engine and caboose; station building fair condition.
