Hanham, Bristol, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: DINKY / HORNBY: A pair of rare ex-shop stock / display unusual Hornby 0 gauge railway trainset flat truck wagons, fitted with a Dinky Massey Ferguson diecast model tractor. Generally believed to be a Meccano prototype sales strategy (to accompany the smaller scale 00 gauge 4649 Hornby Dublo tractor and wagon). Very little is known. Both appear very near mint to mint condition. Tractors are tied to the wagons with original green Dinky string, and the figures have been removed (no signs of paint loss, so it is presumed they were removed prior to painting). It's possible these are unique, and very little is known of their origin. Purchased from a closed down vintage toy shop some 20 years ago and stored carefully ever since. Rare.
