Me old man sent me this recently.....
Oh hell yeah, that's AWESOME!!!!
God they don't build them like they used to. Look at that MFer. Those axles will last thru 5 generations of 3 year olds. Way cool.
Yea, no plastic in sight. I still have my 1950s Hornby rolling stock and a couple of engines, all die cast or tin.
Well, that brings back memories. I still have a box of battered up Dinky Toys from my youth. Maybe a new thread!?
Ah, that's the one you asked me about! If it's '00' scale, then it's fairly rare, as Meccano didn't do many at all in that scale, changing the 'Dinky Toys' brand to 1/43rd (approx).
Nice one old boy !
Very cool Jan!!
Well, it says on the box, 'for use with '00' and 'H0' gauge railways'.
It's rare! I think they were only in production for a short time, and not many different vehicles made. Keep it in it's box - carefully !
Like finer single malt whisky then!
Sort of - but you can't drink the Dinky Toy !
If you loose or damage the box it will be pretty much worthless.
8) Got to love the old Hornby stuff.
Far as I remember, in that scale, they only made the van, a Post Office Morris van, a Scammel 'Scarab' three-wheeled tractor trailer, and a couple of others, all circa very late 1950s to early/mid 1960s, if as late as that.
