I’m a bit of a Tri-ang train fan and collect original vintage rolling stock, here are a few photos of my favourite items from my collection.
As I’ve said before, for me the joy of model railways and trains is not so much the operation but creating and building layouts. One exception to this is my Triang OO gauge collection.
Triang are what I started my journey in model railways with as a child and although I’m not a major collector I enjoy collecting old Tri-Ang rolling stock, cleaning them up and running them – never get in my way if we meet at a boot fair and I spot an old box of trains on a table 🙂
Below are photos of some of my collection, I have a lot more and am uploading pictures here as I get time.

Tri-Ang R116 TR 3576 Gondola
One of my oldest items, the green Gondola first rolled off production lines in 1957 although a grey version was being made from 1955 onwards. They come up on eBay pretty frequently for about £3 to £4. This one has a load added from my childhood days.
