10 1/4" Gauge Triang Miniature Railway in a box

Post by Adirondack » Fri Jul 15, 2022 7:40 pm

FOR SALE!

Triang 10 1/4” gauge backyard miniature railway. Includes professional grade power supply on a roll around cart, and three original crates of track. This was offered in the UK in the early 1960’s, and was considered very posh at the time.

I’m nearly positive this is the only set of its type in the USA. Learn more about it here: http://www.tmnr.co.uk/

Price: $3,000

I can deliver via rental truck at cost in the Northeast, global shipping is also available.

Note: It is missing 2 journals that I will sort out prior to the sale. It also needs repair on one corner of the coach. Otherwise, she’s a beauty!

A little locomotive with 4 wheels on the track is a lot more fun
than a 1/2 finished one with 16 wheels on the bench!

Not to steal your thunder here but I am pretty sure there is one more set of those here in the USA as I saw one for sale at a tag sale at the Trolley museum in Windsor, CT last year. It came with a lot of track too which at first was intriguing but once I realized the goofball gauge and also the light weight sheet metal rail construction I quickly realized that it was better left as a complete set as like you I realized it's a pretty neat toy for what it is.

Saw it in a Facebook ad for the upcoming museum swap meet. I emailed them and said I wanted it. They gave me a price. I accepted. It was actually really easy!
