Didn't buy, as my storage issues have me in a "Catch and Release" mode for this sort of thing. :-)

Possibly the Shortest dogbone layout in the history of toys!

That London Bridge toy is really exceptional Paul. It would be neat to know the manufacturer. It looks like a number of similar toys that Marx made in the US. I know they made stuff for overseas...I wonder if it could be Marx. Regardless, it's a very nice toy and looks to be in great shape.

Yes, and they had a great price on it, too. Great for them. I love the old lithography on things like this, though.
