The Lone Star Day held on Sunday, 26 September will feature displays of products by other north London manufacturers. ...
This year’s Lone Star Day at Whitewebbs Museum of Transport in Enfield on Sunday, 26 September, will see a change, widening the scope to include displays of the products of other smaller manufacturers which were neighbours of DCMT/Lone Star in north London.
As well as displays of many of the different toys manufactured by Lone Star, the toy division of Diecasting Machine Tools (DCMT), based at Palmers Green and Welham Green, this year the organisers, including Geoffrey Ambridge, son of Lone Star co-founder Sidney Ambridge, have widened the net to include displays of the products of other north London manufacturers, like Crescent, Charbens, Lesney, Benbros, Kemlow, Taylor & Barrett, Pixyland, Eebee and Agassi.
Collectors will be showing their toy cars, OOO gauge railways, guns, dolls house furniture, toy machinery, aeroplanes, construction kits, comic books, annuals and other Lone Star, DCMT and Crescent products. It is hoped that ex-employees of the company will again be present.
The Whitewebbs museum, with its historic vehicles, will be open, with refreshments served all day. Collectors with items for display are welcome. There is no charge to exhibit, but a contribution of £10 to museum funds is requested for sales stands.
