Hi, the no. 33w Mechanical Horse and Open Wagon is a familiar item. Pre-war it could be realized by combining the independent nos. 33a and 33c. Post-war it was available for 10 years (1947-1957), indeed, as no. 33w.
But there is also a Mechanical Horse and Covered Wagon. Many of you may have seen an example every now and then, but not often.
Above two examples, my post-war version on the left and David Cooke's nice pre-war version on the right. Still, it is never mentioned officially as far as I know.
So, my questions are:
a. What catalogue number or other reference can be attached to this model?
b. A regular trade box of the no. 33w Mechanical Horse and Open Wagon will not do for this model (see image above). It will need a higher packing than that. Has anybody ever seen a trade box with/for this covered model?
I look forward to any ideas or comments!
Kind regards, Jan Werner
