Disassembling and Rebuilding a Triang Stockbroker

I have just bought another Triang Stockbroker, even though I don’t have any more room for a big house.  Once I see a Triang House, it like seeing a puppy that needs a new home.  So I thought I would buy it for spares.  It was sold to me as needing a little restoration, as…

Lighting a Triang Dolls House
