Hugar Models

1930s -     

Hugar Models of South Street, Epsom were produced by Hugh Gardner, and were predominantly wooden trackside buildings - however, there were also items of rolling stock and other pieces.

Construction of the wooden buildings was slightly crude and cheerful, and tended to use "dollhouse" construction tricks - a signalbox might have a protruding panel-pin for a doorknob, and have a door that hinged thanks to a piece of cloth attached to the back.

Like Hailey Models, Hugar Models are on the list of small UK toy producers thought to have supplied pieces to Bassett-Lowke.
