Hi I hope you may be help me. I bough a tinplate electric train set at auction which bears every resemblance to a 1950's era Brimtoy, but the box it states it's made by Modelex Miniatures in Gt Britain - no mention of Brimtoy anywhere. The locomotive is number 943057 which corresponds to an identical Brimtoy loco that I found on a Google search. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm afraid I can't help you. I couldn't find anything on Modelex Miniatures. Maybe you can find some help on this forum: Brimtoy. It's in German and English.
