When missles were fun

A quick instagram video of a cool toy captured at a recent dig. The interesting part is that this is a large piece and is not a train car. I know there were many large accessories that were made for adding realism to a layout - like mountains and buildings.  I felt this represented at time when toys could allay the fears of youngsters when the spectre of nuclear annihilation was new and frightening.
