Well its the fading hours of Sunday and in the best tradition of British Rail, this article is late. Following on from Sunday Driver, heres part of the 1972 Tri-ang Hornby catalogue, showing the Minix cars as part of the range. Also, its an excuse to showcase the beautiful art of Terence Cuneo, which Maverick kindly identified in an earlier post - http://projectswordtoys.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/scary-monsters-super-creeps.html - he also pointed out that Cuneos trademark was a small mouse included in the artwork. Tri-ang make this clear on the inside page of the catalogue, inviting readers to find the mouse in the painting 'Night Freight'. The answer is given in the catalogue, but try as I might, I can't see the mouse, even after looking at the answer!
Can anyone see it ? Ill post the answer later... meanwhile, here are the Minix cars on the low loader and also in situ on a layout.
