On this page on Dave Angell Trains there are images of Minic Motorway, the road system by Triang from the 60s and early 70s. It had a number of what we now call interfaces with the Triang Railway system including level crossings and road with railway built in. It also included;- junctions, cross roads, bridges, a ferry system and many buildings to populate a whole village. Cars, commercial vehicles and even a tank were available.
I tried to resist starting this collection but a colleague kept trying for over two years to sell me his and in the end I gave in!

Overall view of the layout at Derby - Pavement, ferries and flyover.End view of the same layoutParticularly pleased with the dual carriageway and pavement - hard to come by!
I do like the blue heliport.Most people are happy to have one ferry, some repro parts and one sinking, but Im proud of these - and the A40s and Renaults!
