Description The next catalogue in chronological order is from late 1951/early 1952. This catalogue is printed on both sides. The address on the catalogue is 3 Racquet Court.

The Rapier Giant Mechanical Shovel is ready, the Blaw Knox Bulldozer is “ready shortly”.

A black dot system is used for the first time to show new models in preparation and those temporarily out of print. Models with black dots are ARC VI, ARC VIII, ARC X, ARC XI, C II, F I, NS I, NS II and NS III.

The catalogue has a proper line drawing of the FB set.
Sets E 1, 2, 3 and 4 are mentioned. Abadan is now definitely available, so this catalogue can be dated as late 1951 or early 1952. NS IV is shown as available, although NS I, NS II and NS III have black dots. This fits in with what we know of the NS series.

There is a second catalogue known which is nearly identical. It has also black dots at ARC IX, ARC XV, M III and M IV.
