On David's table were two rare Trix Express American sets. The locos in these sets are the very early type with disc wheels. Locos exported to the USA have a red tinplate cowcatcher mounted at the front.

The goods set, with controller, connecting plugs, wire, and track. 

 

A Trix Express electric loco, also with red cowcatcher.

 

Another tender loco, showing arrangement of disc wheels and connecting rod.

Sales table

On display were some 'mystery' objects purporting to be sectioning switches, but the item on the right looks suspiciously like a cartridge fuse holder.

Here's a real sectioning switch (Cat 418), with its box. This box has a detachable lid, whereas the boxes on the left are end-opening. On the right is a rare Manyways buffer with screw-in buffers bought at Banbury, and is cut down to use with fibre-track.
