Train Set Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1991 The powerful Duchess Class locomotive hauls a three coach train which includes an operating mail coach. This picks up and delivers mail bags as it passes the pick-up and receiving bin positions. Easy fit inclined track supports enable one end of the circuit to be raised to a summit to provide added interest for the driver.
1992 A splendid action set. While the train proceeds round the track a mailbag hung on the pick-up hook will be collected by an operating net in the side of the mail coach. It remains inside until the coach reaches the receiving bin where the mailbag will be thrown out.
1993 This exciting action train set demonstrates the way mailbags used to be collected and delivered by a train without it having to stop. Hang a mail bag on the pick-up hook and watch it being snatched into the mail coach, carried round the layout and then ejected into the receiving bin.
