From: 4TK (Henry Frost) Subject: WANTED - (Trains) Like most children my grandson, he's five and a half is train mad. Oh yes he enjoys the computer, rides his bicycle, swims (after a fashion), plays with his sister and other girls but lives TRAINS. I want to get him an electric train set, something like his dad had when he was a lot younger. I forget the various gauges but anything up to rail width of one and a quarter inches approximately which can be mounted on a 4 foot square sheet of hardboard would be suitable. A train, a couple of coaches or trucks, a signal and possibly a station would be very acceptable. As an OAP I cannot afford to purchase a new outfit for him, one very simple one I enquired about was in the region of eighty pounds........way beyond my pocket money. Now surely among our members there must be somebody who has one which they have outgrown and which is now tucked away in the attic or somewhere which they would be prepared to sell me at a reasonable price. I have been advised by well wishers to attend 'Boot sales', but with arthritic legs (and other parts) I can only walk a very short distance before I've had it. So please, can anybody help me. I will answer ALL letters and refund postage. Henry Frost 3. Rupert Road Bedford Park LONDON W4 1LU TEL:(0181) 994 1989.
