I certainly haven't seen boxes like those in the first picture before. Is that German?

How did you find all this Chris, when I looked for TOMY Express and TOMY Zubehör, nothing as clear as these images came out.
Was this a lost eBay auction?

They were both listed on eBay UK on Dec 1st. I saved all the images from both lots.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tomy-EXPRESS-...3591741369

The listing of the three accessory boxes seems to have vanished after being tagged for a while as 'no longer available', I haven't asked why.  The images I posted above are doctored versions of the originals with their perspective distorted to make the boxes look square.

This is a really cool find Chris! However, I now have Kraftwerk’s “Trans-Europe Express” stuck in my head! Big Grin
