I do wonder if UK modelers might not have had a far superior RTR model railway selection now if triang had been the casualty and/or that Hornby Dublo had just kept going, so we would have had REAL Hornby products now, not evolved triang with another name!

We probably wouldnt have had an industry at all now .Most people could not afford Hornby Dublo .It was much more expensive than Triang,though I agree far better .It was also old fashioned and self satisfied and expensive ,a combination that ensured its decline . Virtually all my friends except the wealthier ones in big houses had Triang .HD was out of the question for most unless Dad could afford it ,mine certainly couldnt .
