Märklin Tin Engine Shed 1952

The Märklin tin 2-road engine shed was produced between 1952 to 1961 and had automatic doors! Two wire rods went from the door to each side of the buffer stop, the buffer was spring loaded so when the loco pushed against the buffers the door would close behind the loco. To open the doors again the loco would push against the doors.

In working condition, worth about £100 today.

Number two shed at Harrow Park

Great to see the doors opening and closing behind the locomotives.
