Not too long ago, I found this wooden object that appeared to have some kind of magnetic powers and looked a bit like a toy car. I also wondered if it could be some kind of odd fishing equipment.


After cleaning it up, I was able to read the text on the inside of the plastic wheels which included “Gullane (Thomas) 2003” and a quick search shows that it is a very destroyed Thomas the Tank Engine toy!

Toys and cars in particular are a common find even on the beach.
