TRIANG RAILWAY

Fun Fair, Triang RailwayThe picture at the top is dated 1966. It shows a corner of Sydenham Avenue and West Parade where miniature trains ran on a single track ten inches wide. This is thought to have been the only installation of its kind made by Triang the famous toy company.

The colour picture was acquired recently here at Jones Towers and shows what I take to be the same ride relocated a decade or so later. It is a card posted in 1978 from Rhyl to a Mr. Foreman of Castleford, Yorks. The senders are Mrs. Gardner and Ada who say, “The weather & everything else is fine.”

Two satisfied customers!
