This was the third
(or fourth counting the Sentinel) steam road
vehicle in the yesteryear range and was still in
regular use around the roads of Britain during
the time of first issue. It is actually quite a
neat little first series model and goes well with
the Y1 Allchin and the Y9 Fowler.
Only appearing in
green , there are only a few variations to look
out for. The main variations can be found in the
colour of the roof supports (either black or
green) and the fly wheel (either brown or black).
The roof supports vary in length but this does
not generally count as a collectible variation.
The amount of gold trim reduced during the
production life of this model. The first issue
had 'full' gold trim including the maker's plate.
This issue is quite rare and can be found in mint
boxed condition above £200. The makers plate was
soon left unpainted and subsequent issues can be
found on sale at swapmeets between £70 and
