At the last toy train show (I go there to buy cars), I found two Barclay VWs that had been used on a train layout. These 1/86 scale diecast toys were made in Union, N.J., in the mid 1960s, and are similar to Tootsietoys, though smaller. A little paint stripping, some fresh paint and decals, and SHAZAM! The world's first Barclay Herbie!
This one is destined for PJ's collection, so no spilling the beans.
I still have one more Barclay and one more set of decals, so I'm debating whether or not there should be two...
