Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

I recently added a few more mouths to the litter. Pricing was fair - not yard sale, not individual retail, but I am happy as I wanted a couple of these:

I don't know how many are into these, but I'll give a brief description. From L to R - 31a American Ford wagon - introduced in 1957, 10c Foden sugar container - introduced in 1960, 72a Fordson tractor - introduced in 1959, 56a London trolley bus - introduced in 1958, and 50a Commer pickup, introduced in 1958, and in front, a 20b ERF Ever Ready truck, introduced in 1959.

Several of these are varieties I didn't yet have. The Ford wagon is a metal wheels model in an earlier B2 box, I have a few of these and will probably sell it - and it has an interesting likely factory paint blemish on the roof. The 10c truck is an upgrade to the one I already have, so the old one will be for sale - this one is also in a C box, which I like as they were made only for about a year. The 72 tractor in a D box is new one for me, my existing model is in a B box and has grey wheels. The 56 trolley is new for me, I did not yet have black wheels or a D box. The Commer pickup is one of my favorite castings, and I did not yet have one with black wheels, this is a later run model probably from 1963-64. The black wheels Ever Ready truck is also new to me, the one I had before has grey wheels. I'll now go on the needle in a haystack search for an empty box for it. All in all, maybe a nice Christmas present to myself.
