Mick O’Dowd… Remember this? Situated along the seafront across the road from Hammond’s shop with the “penny in the slot” trains. Near the Sun Lounge.

Lloyd Johnson… My Mum would take me for a walk up to the penny in the slot toy shop at Marine Court. I Loved the train going around the window….a great attraction for me and I’m sure many others….and I seem to have a vague memory of the Christmas windows across the town when you had to find a thruppenny piece in the window displays.That was a lot of fun and a great way to get people out and about window shopping during the weeks leading up to Christmas….

Nicola Dobson… remember the same loved being taken there to see the train going around
