A yellow Hornby gauge 0 "Colman's Mustard" wagon dating from 1924.

The wagon has a white roof and black base, red lettering with a black drop-shadow, a Royal crest with "BY APPOINTMENT" bottom-left, and the "Colman's" symbol of a bull's head top-right.

The wagon has a hinged opening side door with a small handle.

The Hornby "Colman's" Wagon is especially collectable, not just because it's so distinctive and recognisable, but also because the wagon was only available for a short time -- it had already been withdrawn by the time that the 1925 Hornby Book of Trains appeared.
