riang were well known for their diecast ranges the models below are slightly more obscure, from the Jumbo series.
Firstly the more common of the two is the Triang Tugster number 37a, available in blue, metallic green and red.
There are two trailer types for this model, one standard type that fits on the rear hook and a gooseneck trailer that locates in the hole on the top rear.
Production between 1970 to 1975.
Finally after 1 and a half years the green Triang tugster came up for sale, seen by chance at the Brentwood toy fair in Essex, it came in mint condition and complete with it’s box.
Now the tractor and green trailer I already had are finally paired up.
Obviously the search will continue for a blue trailer along with the elusive hay trailer
Another Tugster found on Ebay, in yellow and with a hay lift, didn’t know this one existed a week ago, the number may well be different too.
The second tractor/loader I have found far less information on.
This is a different casting to the Tugster and have found no real information on the internet or elsewhere, as above colours seen are blue, yellow and green, many seen with cab missing.
The lever that can be seen in the cab operates the loader arm up or down.
Finally both Triang models together, scale wise, hard to say for sure but 1:28 to 1:32 would be a reasonable guess.
