September 11, 2008 - Though Ives had been taken over in 1928, the Ives name remained alive during what collectors call the ﾓtransition period,ﾔ as the Ives factory was eventually shut down and remaining parts used up. One of the products of the transition period was the Ives 3236R, which was actually an 8E body on an Ives frame. The frame was carried over from an earlier Ives electric-type locomotive. At the time, the 3236R was probably superior to the venerable No. 8, because the Ives version had the better reversing unit. The 3236R was offered in 1929 and 1930, and was often sold with Ives 180 Series passenger cars.
M.T.H. is proud to return the shiny baked-enamel finish of this classic electric to the tinplate world in several never-before-offered paint schemes.
