-514 Guy Van 'Slumberland' (1950-52)

Hi Everyone,
Bit of info needed if possible.

What is the story behind the "Slumberland" Guy Van fitted with Supertoy hubs? I have seen these around, and really should get one to complete my line up, but I was convinced that the "Slumberland" Van was long deleted before the Supertoy hubs came into use. Indeed, I thought the first Guy Van to be fitted with the later hubs was the "Weetabix" livery, released after both "Slumberland" and "Lyons" had been deleted?

Hi Chris, may be my article can satisfy you?

Or - on the other hand - did it raise your question?

Kind regards, Jan

Jan,

Wonderful thank you! I knew I has read about this variation but couldn't recall where, it was your article in the Journal, I should have known!
The export of late issues makes sense, and I had forgotten that the early Guys weren't issued one after another but concurrently. I guess I like to put these models into nice neat little time frames and the real world just never worked like that!
Thanks a lot for helping me out, now all I need to do is get one!
BTW......I won't even bother to look for a black hubbed version then........ :laugh:

Jan--I have gone back and read some of the Journal article since joining DTCA, but that one is so well done and interesting! You did a wonderful job explaining the whole history of that van, along with great illustrations. Very well done and you are right...it appears that subtle variations of many Dinky models keep appearing; the final history won't be written for some time.
And I also agree that a proper, like new or mint Slumberland is beautiful and would have to be a favorite. Scratched up and dull, it loses much of its original appeal.
