Trackmaster rolling vehicles
#1
So? In the Trackmaster line?
There have been several "rolling" vehicles.
The word "rolling" means non-battery operated.
There is Kelly, Nelson, Byron, Buster, Jack, Max and Monty.
Some talk about how hard it is to find Monty.
I would be hard pressed to disagree.

How hard is it? For anyone here? To find a Trackmaster Max? A Jack?

Oh! I forgot Oliver!
How silly of me!

max and Jack are not hard to fine. Alfie on the other hand is extremly difficult and expensive

There's no push along Alfie in this style, only the motorised one. Also, they were initially made by HiT Toys and Jack was added by Fisher Price (either from a new tooling or an unused HiT Toys one).

I think Monty has to be the most difficult non motorized train/vehicle to find. I saw one on Mercari a few years ago, that I don't think was ever actually available (the seller flaked), and then one Monty was part of a larger lot of used trains a seller in the UK was selling. And with that lot, you had to zoom in on one of the photos to even realize it was the #16 and not just a more common #15 max truck. There was a listing on a polish website that purported to have two new in box Montys, but a particularly resourceful BPT member did a wonderful job pretty conclusively determining this was smoke and mirrors, or perhaps less nefariously, the listing was simply an online storefront that went belly up and never removed their site from the interwebs! And finally, another BPT member was able to procure a monty from someone who put a listing on twitter.

So other than two confirmed listings, and two suspect ones, I've never seen another Monty for sale.

Ok.
we are all speaking "my language".
All of you are correct.
However!
Let us put it in a mathematical equation? Bare with me, here, please.
In this particular thread. We have discussed:
a motorized Alfie
a rolling Monty, a rolling Jack, and a rolling Max.

Here is the question!
In the past 365 days? How many of each!-this is important!

In the past 365/days how many of each have you seen for sale?
1? 2? 3? Which one?

@ leylandvictory!
I checked that link. I like the car.
But I like that pick-up better!
