    John and I have returned from the Toy – diecast show and what great finds we came across.



    I pick up two fire trucks made by Matchbox of yesteryear from the mid 1950’s.

    These have outstanding detail.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 42 deg and heading to 48 with rain.

    Yesterday ended up mostly sunny, not bad for end of Oct.

    After John left yesterday, we pulled out the S#$^#!N Blower and made sure it was ready and would start. Just in case Chief finds his hammer again. :eek:

    Ray – I can’t say who made it. It was at a friends house. I will have to ask him about it. It did look rather old.



    2 rail scale – how about NO rails, just overhead catenaries, and I don’t think it’s scale at all, but is ‘O’ gauge. :thumb:
