Pre-war Hornby Dublo Box Set
If you were a very lucky boy in 1938, you may have found this Hornby Dublo set, under the Christmas tree. Notably, there were only 10 types of sets available, five in Clockwork and five electric versions. The electric versions used three-rail track. Two-rail was not used again until 1959.
