Kingsway was a distibution company based in America.

The exact entry from the diecast encyclopedia is - "This firm distributed Tintoys "T" prefix numbered models over twenty years ago. The same models bearing "WT" prefix numbers were sold by K-Mart (6). See also Tintoys and WT

It is not apparent from the entry as printed if an error was made with naming the brand as Tintoys when it should have been Tins' Toy. Or as "WT" instead of the printed 'T', making both references included to be associated more correctly - based on the second Tintoys see also mention - to just Tintoys and their 'WT' prefix numbering system.

One can also not rule out that a listing for Kingsbury - as is noted at the Tins' Toy entry - was inadvertently left out (or edited out by the publisher).

Perhaps the authors who are also HobbyTalk members may some day provide clarification for us. :cheers2:
