Crick Crack Train
Made in Hong Kong in about 1980, the Crick Crack Train has an intriguing action. The eccentric movement of the undercarriage of the engine means that the whole engine moves in an odd way as the train moves along, and this movement is transmitted back through the little carriages, to give quite a comical effect.
A clockwork toy, this one.
