Prototype: The G.I.Joe Train
This prototype was displayed as one of the cards in the G.I.Joe 30th Salute Trading Card set.
"Inspired by Lionel's and American Flyer's military toy trains of the 1950s
and 1960s, the GI Joe military train was created to offer a new play pattern
for kids to play with GI Joe. They scale of the train was approximately LCG
size, allowing realistic interation with other GI Joe figures and
accessories. Although the track, motor, and chassis components were
intended to utilize Playskool molds to help defray costs, the expense was
still prohibitive enough to derail the train's production in 1991."
