Try as I might I can find no reference to Pennyburn trailers on the internet. The nearest I came to a clue was an industrial estate in Oldbury in the West Midlands called the Pennyburn estate - maybe there was a trailer maker there in the Sixties who named their trailer after their location? Tenuous I know.

I actually spent my own pocket money on one of these and I still have it - although it is a complete wreck and not featured on this website. Corgi added it to the range in 1968 and it was deleted in 1969. There should be a pick, shovel and brush inside the trailer. It is not a particularly sought after model and values are modest. The core range item was always blue on a yellow chassis although you will also see it in metallic blue with a white chassis and no tools inside. This is from a gift set, GS10 where it is paired with a Rambler Marlin Fastback as a camping trailer.

The tools in the back of my trailer below are not the originals - these have been acquired from my kids' Lego box
