Crap, I just realized that the photos for the brake vans are all wrong. I need to find the correct photos and post them.

They are funny.
Seems I've seen all of them in the "Thomas & Friends" movie... :grin:

triang was a bit coarse, particularly the wagon underframes which are cast metal. however they are durable and still perform well even today. however the bodies of the wagons are often surprisingly well cast and with a bit of superdetailing and a new chassis from the 3mm society, they look equivalent to today's models, which is not bad for something from 1957.

Nicholle has gone so far as to draw a smiley face on a round sticker and put that on the smokebox door of one of our Jintys for our son Terry, who loves Thomas and Friends.

Then again, we are talking about the kid whose second word ever was "Train". (His first was "Pizza").
