A mid-sized red LMS wooden tank locomotive pull-along floor-toy made by Tri-Ang circa 1930-37. By the time of the 1937-38 catalogue, this loco range had been replaced with more sophisticated models with additional wheels.

This is the locomotive from the "Size A" train set, with wooden discs for buffers, and four white wheels with red painted hubs, fitted to a pair of wooden blocks attached to the base.

There is a large black plate with corners completely rounded-away, with LMS in large block white letters, and the Lines Brothers "triangle" logo and other text markings in silver.

The front of the loco has a curved circular plate with embossed firebox door details.

Length is 13 3/4 inches.
