I know this has appeared on the thread before, however I finally got one to put on my layout.  I have always like the way it looked on the layouts of others.  I was surprised at how large it is.  One finally came up on ebay at what I considered to be a reasonable price.

Well done on acquiring one Greg.  I managed to buy one the same way late last year.  I too was surprised at how large it was once I'd plugged all the separate parts together.

One thing has me puzzled.  The photos of yours appear to show this item in different colors to mine ... or is it a trick of the light?  The body of mine is definitely a cool silver color.


Mine looks more like Greg’s, but the top is a green blue. I’ve never seen the silver color.


Okay guys, does this piece have a name or description you used to find it?  I’d like to keep an eye out for one myself! “Tinplate clock” didn’t help me find one.
