A brown "JACOB & Co.'s, BISCUITS" wagon with brown roof and black base, bare metal couplings, and the 1930s-style simplified (and slightly more realistic) chassis.

Description

The wagon has the late-1920s/1930s coloured roof, and 1930s-Hornby-Series sliding side-doors.

There is a black and red "MADE IN ENGLAND BY / MECCANO LTD / HORNBY SERIES" rectangular with rounded corners and red border, screenprinted on one end of the wagon, just above the buffers.
