Very large stocks were purchased by Broadway Approvals in 1956, and later passed on to the Watford Model Supply Co. in 1971.
A feature of the first printing at 1/8d is a small additional sheet of paper giving constructional details. This sheet of paper is necessary as the instructions inside the wrapper are for set LS II Loco Shed (a fairly major error). Likewise set LS II has the wrapper instructions for LS I and thus needs a set of paper instructions correcting the error. The later edition of LS I at 2/6d has the correct wrapper instructions and thus lack the small piece of paper.
In the mid-1950’s a large Presso book called “OO Gauge Railway Station” was published. This is essentially LS I enlarged to OO Gauge scale and designed by a Mr. F. C. Banks. The book is also listed on the rear cover of the more common Dan Dare’s Anastasia Jet Plane Presso book.
The 1950 catalogue shows a nice picture of the completed model.
