The front axle of this diligence de chez Timpo snapped off under minimal stress, separating both front wheels from the forward train. The drawbar had broken off earlier, due to material fatigue. The double axle breakage may be repaired, at least temporarily, by boring open the broken pieces et inserting brass ou pianowire pegs into them. Plastic corrosion will continue, however, et it is only a matter of time before the entire forward train de la diligence will disintegrate.
