Seems I succeeded in snookering myself!? I now have Monty Python's Lumberjack Song going round in my head like an hideous earworm! :music_mini2:

Well you started it, leaping from tree to tree, floating them down the rivers of British Columbia....

Here's an oddity! A heavily bashed H/D 3-rail 0-6-2T. Considering the level of surgery, it looks strangely characterful? Suspect the tall chimney would foul most layout's loading gauges?

 

A rather cute bit of bodgery. It might be worth a punt if the 3-rail mechanism is still working...

Model of an experimental clean and green locomotive, no need for centre section containing engines, it is fitted with a hamster wheel in each nose.

It's one of those quirky kind of locos that I find actually rather interesting!

 

Seen a lot worse....

Home turned boiler fittings??

 

Or bits of one of those brass mantle clocks you could win at a funfair. (Provided that you compensate for the filed down sights on the air rifles.)

We can look forward now to all sorts of ancient Jouef  rubbish* being listed this coming weekend. Crumbs, it wasn't even a Playcraft by Jouef set!  There was no mention of the quality of Jouef brand products improving no end when Hornby took over the label.

 

And - could nobody in the studio know how to put all the wheels on the track? The number of close-up views of the wagons off the rails was amazing.

 

*There were a few good items produced by Jouef at the time of production of the set in the programme, but not many!
