00-gauge Miscellaneous (display)
A very dark (black?) two-piece 00-gauge model railway Trix Twin Railway (TTR) Breakdown Crane Truck Set, catalogue no.615.
The set is distinctive in that the crane's long arm isn't supported by a single long truck, but on a pair of shorter trucks, with one truck holding the crane's swivel-mount base, and the other holding the crane armrest and a toolbox.
This piece appeared in the 1939/40 Trix catalogue, but was flagged as "under preparation".
It also appears in post-war catalogues.
