A view of the turntable area showing one end of the station Stephenson's Rocket Locomotive and period coaches was an attractive and unusual part of the Tri-ang Hornby range until 1969.  Although small, its specification included Magnadhesion and Smoke. Although not strictly part of the Tri-ang Hornby range, the bright red 'Lord Westwood' is a very striking version of the popular Hall locomotive. The Battle Space Turbo Car with large yellow fan spinning at the rear.
General view of the station area. The working Royal Mail coach is about to collect a mailbag from the lineside apparatus The engine shed area with trains passing on the mainlines.  Apart from the Wrenn locomotives, all of the items in this image were produced at Margate. The station area with a Class 3F tender locomotive at the head of 'The Midlander'.  The display unit over the fiddle yards is visible along the back.
The train set that started it all for me.  B12 61572 heads 'The Holiday Express' away from the station.  I was lucky enough to find this complete and boxed train set on our local market. The engine shed area with the 75 Ton breakdown crane in the siding.  Originally part of the Hornby Dublo range, this Co-Bo diesel, can be included in my collection by virtue of a Tri-ang Hornby sticker on the old Hornby Dublo box. Britannia 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' hauls the 'Pullman Express' through the station.  This was the final loco drive version of this particular model as it is fitted with nickel tyre wheels and steam sound and dates from around 1971. The Battle Space train is always of interest at exhibitions.  This comprises of a Sniper Car with ducking sniper, a satellite launching car with flying satellite, the large bomb carrier, a searchlight wagon with working searchlight and the red exploding wagon with actually explodes.  What more could a small boy want?
A close up of the satellite launching wagon.  The satellite could be launched manually of activated by a lineside trip. Some of the catalogues from the Tri-ang Hornby years.
