Voltamp was an early American manufacturer of toy trains. Founded by Manes Fuld, Voltamp's trains utilized the same 2-inch gauge metal track as Carlisle & Finch, the inventor of the electric toy train, and is significant for its 1907 release of the first electric toy train that operated on household alternating current. Earlier electric trains had used battery power.
Voltamp released its first toy train product in 1903.
