Here's some cool home movie You Tube footage, courtesy of electron1100, of one of my fave toys as as a kid in the Sixties and probably my only dabble into the steamy world of trains! Maybe it was a birthday prezzy, I can't remember!
Yes, it's that clunky set for plastic toy fans, a fairweather loco, The Big Big Train by SpaceX creators Triang. We've featured it many times on this blog and Scoop has a set and I think Bill may have one now! Its a Big Big hit at Moonbase Central!
It has Gerry Anderson form too, having cameo'd in Last train to Bufflers Halt, an episode of the Secret Service. Alas I can't find a clip of the toy being used. Can you readers?
