Tempelin Disney Handcar
Whatever James paid was probably worth it. I think I have seen one of these maybe twice at auctions. Never on a train table at a show. I'll be looking for this at York this year.
I know this will sound like absolute heresy but this handcar looks much more robust than the Lionel flavor from the 30's. No, I am not an idiot, I know the Lionel version was O gauge and this is standard gauge.
This isn't cheap like that plastic junk Lionel tried to sell in G gauge. Quality lasts a lifetime (and in the case of this handcar, probably way longer than that), period.
