The Hodges Hand Car set are over 50 years old. These handcars were first patented in 1934 and were produced by a small manufacturer in Indiana. The Hodges are self-propelled around the track by the rotating action of the hand pedals which are mounted in the middle of each handcar.

Ottaway Pump-It car

The Ottaway You Pump It Car set are also over 50 years old. These handcars were produced in Kansas and are self-propelled around the track by the pumping action of a “T” bar which is mounted in the middle of each handcar.
