From the top, assume HO scale unless I say otherwise:
- Sylvan resin kit for a Mercury half ton pickup - Looks interesting and I was fascinated by the road vehicles I saw.
- Yeti - I've never seen one for sale in a model shop before.
- Triang CN caboose - I wanted something made in Britain but of a Canadian prototype. And it's bright orange.
- Triang Giraffe car (OO) - Sooo cheap. Less than a tenner of UK money!
- Walthers Trainline GP9M loco - I saw locos that looked a bit like this operating and this one was priced at just under 30 pounds.
- Bar Mills "Sweaty Betty's" dinner kit - It just looks fun.
- Walthers Cornerstone Lakeshore coal & ice shed kit - I have a feeling that this is the sort of building that might prove useful on a UK or US based layout one day. I like laser-cut kits too.
Of course, I did come back with some other stuff.
The CN Tower is a proper railway building and so once I'd been up it, the mug was a given. The cuddly tower keyring is just the most bizarre thing I've ever seen.
The CN torch and screwdriver set and duck come from the Toronoto Railway Museum - a group so friendly they took me behind the scenes so I determined to come away with plenty of stuff from the little gift shop.
And the pencil, well one maple leaf thing is OK.
There's also a T-shirt from Credit Valley Railway and a lumberjack shirt.
And yes, there will be more Canada posts to come. I'll try to spread them out a bit as no-one wants to be bored by anyone's holiday slides. However, my photos are really interesting and you can see them here!
