    Hello CW!
    Today I want to share this antique catalog concerning all to trains.
    I found it into a lot of vintage papers in a flea market.
    Looks very old, also the vintage condition isnt so good.
    Without cover, from page I to XXIV.
    Measures: 23,5cm x 30 cm each page.
    Undated and whitout any name, who edited and where.
    I see that the illustrations have the acronym G.C.U.Co. and doing a search into the web I think maybe can be Georges Carette, Nuremberg.
    I love these illustrations and I want to know what is.
    Thanks so much.
    With love,
    Virginia

      Interesting post, particularly image four. I enjoy seeing the similarities between languages.....as ever the French seem to need more words for the same thing! However tunnel seems to have been embraced by all :-)

      To f64, michael, brunswick, RonM and dear Sean, many and many thanks for the loves!
    34. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      That first illustration looks like a very complicated steam engine toy which would go for a lot of money had one come up for auction. I imagine a lot of train collectors would love to get their hands on this. Wonderful find ! It is so hard to find good collector catalogs and vintage articles.
    35. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 3 years ago
      Hello Phil, thanks so much for your love and comment, much appreciated.
      Oh, very interesting what you said!
      I think those illustrations are very complicated as well, difficult to belive is about "toys".
      Im safe are originals pages, not a reproduction, the paper looks really older.
      Once again, many thanks Phil!
