Not sure if this is best location for this, hut as far as HO history this is holy grail.

Sorry we lost Derek Brand. Sure HO guys know his history; he invented Playcraft Highways, Aurora vibrator, Aurora T-Jet He also worked for Tyco US 1 trucking and Tyco 440. His sons are on eBay will be selling some rare prototypes.

Search slot cars and prototype to find his auctions.

Good luck,

SJJ
