A red London Underground train set with box, aluminium, in 00-gauge, by "Ever Ready".

One of the few London Underground train sets ever produced.

Ever Ready were better known as a manufacturer of domestic batteries, and seem to have decided that an electric train set that ran on batteries would be a good idea (the flash at the bottom left of the box reads "Battery Extra"). The London Underground trains were electric, and the lack of competing "underground" model trains represented a gap in the market and didn't necessarily put Ever Ready at such an obvious disadvantage when it came to their lack of trackside accessories.
