i got this for $12 from a charity shop yesterday. mostly complete, missing the driver and tree. engine is untested, but everything looks in such good shape i dont see why it wont work.

i also bought a 70s meccano/hornby clockwork percy this morning, one of the first HO releases for the thomas and friends range. should be here next week, along with a couple of other buys, one which is destined to end up with nigels.

Thumbs Up 
Very Nice Sun...aren't you running out of room in the attic? Smile That vintage Tomy box looks in fantastic condition. Aren't those the really high sloped rails with the cog teeth on the sides? That Clockwork Percy is nice looking, is it quality built, plastic/metal? Why do they call it clockwork, is it because of its mechanism?

Wow Sun, that a really nice and varied haul! I especially like the Shell tanker and shipping containers but it’s all really cool.

super, the attic is so full that during earthquakes i dont risk being under my door frame anymore LOL. one big one we had, i ended up on the front porch, worried the ceiling would collapse.
we did reduce a lot of weight last winter when i was off work for several months. i spent hours up there each day having a jolly good chuck out, and mum did hers as well. still lots to go, but no where near as heavy as it was. i just want to spread the tubs of tracks out more and put the different ranges back into their spots. now i am off again for 6 weeks or so, i will go back up and see what i can do to improve things furthur.

the percy is clockwork as he has a key to wind him up. likely a metal frame with a plastic body, but i dont have him yet so cant say 100%. i also have a similar vintage thomas, along with newer versions of both characters.

yes, the slopes are the old cog teeth style, and both female connection points are in the great shape. many end up broken on one side or another, so to get mint ones is rare.

OTR, thanks. i like the shell tanker as well, one i didnt have yet.

That Clockwork Percy is from 1966, from a company called Meccano. That thing runs on O Gauge track- it's VERY rare to find it in good shape. When the 'Percy' license was done, the remaining units were sold in France as the "Playtrain", with red smokeboxes and no face. This video shows a good comparison in scale with Plarail, but there's better videos of it with the basic operation. As for material, it's a cheap kind of plastic, so no-kids zone in place on that one haha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy2TxkU60ZU

Reading what Star says and watching the video, Sun, you may have something there especially in that fine condition. Did the key come with it and was the box included?
