WAR IN TOYLAND (May, 1945)

WAR IN TOYLAND. German raiders who venture to make a landing on the Kentish coast of England will get a warm reception from this miniature armored train. Behind a puffing pint-size locomotive it patrols the narrow-gauge line of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railroad, which in peacetime carried bank-holiday pleasure-seekers to coast resorts for a bit of sea air. Crouching in the tiny armored cars, British Tommies man machine guns, eager to pot any Jerry wot shows ‘is bloomin’ fyce.

    Supposedly, this thing managed to even shoot down a german plane in WW2. A BF109 to boot!

    Apparently the pilot mistook the train for a full scale one and misjudged his strafing run.

    He was able to bail out and was captured.

    Now as long as the Germans invade using small soldiers…
