Tri-ang Australian Sets

F18 Set

 

 

This set is not shown in any catalogues or price lists, but appears to date to about 1968-69. The use of two R480 double straights is unusual, as is the lack of an uncoupling ramp in a goods set. The rolling stock is of UK manufacture, but the track is Australian made.

 

 

It is assumed to be a custom set assembled by Moldex for one of the Australian department stores. The F code suggests it may have been Foys, who had a large store in Melbourne .
