I've got one of those 380 village sets at the bottom of the post legosmile2 I had it on display at Brickvention this year. I didn't realise it was so rare. There is only one on sale on Bricklink, mine doesn't have the internal boxes unfortunately.

This article really needs to be documented at all Exhibitions across Australia.

Be proud of our history not ashamed of it !!!

Paul:

Thanks for the link. I'm always fascinated to read Gary's articles.

Also, it never occurred to me that the HO scale vehicles were available in Australia! 0_0
