Hello,

it was in 1965, when Lima introduced a true classic, the 10-axle melted iron car. This was a rather detailed model which still has many friends. In 2015 this beauty turns 50!

The first version had white CAFL inscriptions



From the early 70's it carried a small CAFL logo printed in black



More Versions up to come!
