The Trix Twin Catalogue
The first catalogue to use the TTR logo
In the Spring of 1937 the new catalogue showed on the front page a locomotive coming out of a tunnel. Turning the split page shows a train going the other way into the tunnel, illustrating the principle of “Twin Trains”
The catalogue unfolds to show :-
This spread sheet measures 44 cms x 37 cms.
A closer view of the LNER trains on the top right is shown below:-
And the centre bottom in close up shows the range of rolling stock :-
The train at the bottom of the photo shows a mixed liveried train, with a LMS loco and guards van whilst the other stock is LNER
The new English style buildings are shown only briefly, not all of the ones listed are shown, perhaps they were not yet made at the time the catalogue was printed, but prices are listed. For example the Terminal station cost 15/- that is about 75 pence in todays money or 1 Euro !
Part of the back :-
On the left the advantages of Trix track are explained, and on the right automatic uncoupling using the new remote uncoupling rail.
The back cover shows the Trix Construction sets.
