Some Tri Ang Transcontinental stock

First released in the early 50's with the Tri Ang Railways logo






Later they changed the road name to Transcontinental





They also released the Davy Crocket set in 1962


The Giraffe car was not part of the set but its yellow!!

The photo of the Davy Crocket brings back mixed memories. I was about to buy one in a shop on St Stephens Green close to the top of Grafton St (forget the name). The sales assistant took the loco out of the box to let me have a look at it, but when she was putting it back she just dropped it into the box which she was holding vertically. Of course it passed straight through the box, opening the flap at the lower end and crashing to the floor! Naturally the front end of the loco, cow catcher, smokestack etc were in bits. I ended up buying a 2-car railcar instead and this ended up painted in CIÉ black & tan livery.
