Lot Essay

See copy of letter from Alan Ellis with lot; he surmises that these locomotives were adapted in the Toronto warehouse of Meccano, rather than at Binns Road. Whilst it would be possible to reproduce such a piece, this example has been in the Bianco collection since the 1970s, and the mechanism components (as described identically and unseen by Alan Ellis) have clearly never been used
