A brown open private owner's railway wagon in 5" gauge, with Bassett-Lowke Ltd. markings on a diagonal white black-outlined band.

This wagon's paintwork convincingly copies the markings of a classic Bassett-Lowke Ltd. wagon that was produced in much smaller gauges. As a result, even though the five-inch gauge makes it a "miniature" railway wagon (compared to full-size rolling stock), it's also at the same time a "giant" version of a model railway wagon.
