A black and red Hornby Series Gas Cylinder Wagon, from around ~1924.

Description

The wagon consists of a black "type 2" wagon base with three red end-capped gas cylinders, held in place with two black "shaped" metal traps. the two side-cylinders are lettered "GAS CYLINDER" in black-outlined gold text. Later versions of the wagon lost the obvious "GAS CYLINDER" text and replaced it with sets of railway company initials.

The wagon is located on track one (nearest the front) of shelf four.
