343 Train Ferry

The classic Train Ferry set 343 was released in 1968 in both Europe and North America (where it was produced by Samsonite). It is modeled on the ferries used to transport passenger rail cars in Europe, such as along the Vogelfluglinie between Denmark and Germany.

The 1×8 vertical hinge piece is unique to the set. It is used to articulate the bow and stern sections, which lift to allow train cars to roll in.
