I recently purchased a Dewitt Clinton train from my local  (100Miles)  train shop.   They thought there were 4 more sets in America"s earliest train sets.  Does anyone know what these were called?    Thank you,  Bill

I couple sets I can think of off the top of my head were called "Pegasus", "Prussia" and "John Bull", there may have been one more but I cannot think of what it was.

Bill-

Yes, there are five variations. Don't look for them to run very well  as they are just too small. DCC is probably out unless you want to hide a decoder in one of the cars and at least semi-permanently connect it to the loco. While these short cars and locos will practically turn a right-angle corner, their weight-induced running characteristics make them poor prospects for regular use. Putting lead anywhere you can and keeping track and wheels shiny clean will help but such intense maintenance tends to wear out a modeler's interest pretty quickly. Still, they are a fun display or occasional use item.
