A pre-war wooden-effect (teak) brown pre-war LNER Corridor Coach (Hornby-Dublo D1) with white rounded-ended roof, marked "42759"

Design

These elegant little shortish pre-war model carriages had roofs that extended nicely into a curved end at front and back end, as opposed to the post-war models that whose roofs ended rather more abruptly with simpler "guillotined-looking" ends.

1939 catalogue image of the same teak LNER Corridor Coach. There seems to be a slight colour difference between this and the 1938 illustration, but this might just be down to a difference in printing
