Triang 60 1930
This house has the circular metal logo from 1930 so I think it is the first model of this number. Came from ebay with horrific overpainting; done by children in gloss. The windows are complete but fragile; 3 have original lace curtains. The porch seat is there too.

Yes, they are original but they are painted, there's no sign of any holes where card may have been - sometimes I think Triang made it up as they went along. BTW the wiggly horizontal line is the photo is the child-applied gloss.
My newer 60 has just 3 straight vertical 'timbers'.

The gloss paint came off easily but the roof was overpainted with copper enamel, probably Humbrol and it doesn't shift! I haven't got another of it in the original but I'll take more as it progresses.

Mine has slightly different timbering and a triangular logo so it must not be as old as yours.

Very interesting gable timbering - is it original?
