I had it as well unless there were more than one with the stories on it,
one of them has a reasonable recording of a steam train going fast .
Mother got quite fed up one afternoon when I borrowed her Garrard record
player and attempted with various measures of success to synchronise that
section of the recording with my Tri-ang Princess Royal and coaches on
there never ending journey around a track on 6’x4’ board which represented

wherever I wanted it to be.
