" Steel container construction is represented by the Hornby L.N.E.R Goods Container "BLS297". The corrugations pressed out in the sides and front end of the original are well reproduced, as are the courses of rivets and the ventilating bonnets at each end. The design of the rear end shows two upper doors and the usual drop-down loading flap, with the necessary hinges and fastenings.
This Container is finished in the familiar L.N.E.R. "red oxide" shade used for brake-fitted and "piped" wagons. The lettering is in yellow, and on the sides appears the full title of the company. Words emphasising the door-to-door nature of L.N.E.R. container transport and its advantages also are shown. "
