Toy Trains are popular with many collectors. Tin-plate and die-cast models are prefered to plastic items owing to their excellent workmanship, durability and appearance. The great days of toy trains were the 1920's and 1930's when rising standards of living enabled more and more parents to afford them for their sons. This book covers the great household names of the period, Hornby, Bassett-Lowke and Trix, whose models were readily available then and are now very collectable. It gives details of the various locomotives, rolling stock and accessories together with information on boxes, literature and associated items. There are lists of museums, reference books and organisations catering for the toy train collector.
