Can anyone identify this building for me please? I wonder if it is an early 50's Faller or something else-and is it a bus station because the openings aren't big enough for trains? The window 'glass' has been made from 1950's photo album 'tissue' which has a spider web pattern (my mother has some in her wedding album, that's how i know!). The walls are card and there are some wood parts. The outer low walls are plastic. Any ideas?ConfusedBILD5544.JPGBILD5542.JPGBILD5541.JPGBILD5550.JPGBILD5551.JPG

Hi!

First appeared in the catalog 1955 Faller Berg und Talstation für Seilbahn System Eheim :

and a video of it:

Enjoy! I think you have the "Tal" part of the set - the valley station of the cable car.

Thank you so much for that excellent response! and it makes perfect sense-this belonged to my father and he was well into Eheim trolleybuses and he also made his own cablecar lift model from scratch so i am so pleased to discover what it is. I also have a plastic tower which looks like the one in the video so think that goes with it-and i'm thinking maybe he has the rest of it somewhere in the loft-exciting! I'm off to have a rummage right now...BigGrin

bevtreasure,

You are most welcome and a belated welcome to the Forum!

I felt a bit like Parsifal on a quest for the Holy Grail, but it sounds as if you a much closer ThumpUp
