Very sparse at the most recent toyfair; too close to Christmas probably.
So another replacement Pullman car and Corgi Morris J-type in RAC livery. Not too bad overall.
Some years ago, I sold my early Tri-ang (pre Hornby merger) OO scale Pullman cars. So when I found one in a ‘bargain bin’ at a recent toyfair I found it hard to resist, especially as it was less money than I sold my one for. Now though, I need to find replacements for some of the other Pullman coaches.
Missed a Toyfair in July due to being in hospital. So despite being unwell still, struggled out to one a few days ago.
And there we have a slightly crude model of a Jaguar XJS (with pull-back action) by Maisto and a Lledo Morris Z van in Hamley’s (toyshop) livery. Absolutely no money at all.
Missed a toyfair visit again earlier in the year due to being unwell. So with a bit of an effort, I made the most recent one. It was not well attended by either buyers or sellers and there was no opportunity to add to my Hornby 3-rail items.
So, a Matchbox 1-75 series ERF Horsebox (1957-64) and although it looks the same size (if not scale) what is actually a Matchbox Yesteryears series (first issue) Sentinel Steam Wagon…of about the same vintage. Outlay of ‘virtually no money at all’. Pleasing overall.
