An early 1930s gauge 0 Hornby Miniature Luggage and Truck set, ("Railway Accessories No.1").

On display is a green tin porter’s barrow and two trunks.

The full set had four pieces of luggage: an alligator skin suitcase, a hamper, a flat top trunk and another with a rounded top. The two trunks are on display along with the barrow.

The first set of platform accessories began being sold in 1924, before the Hornby Series trademark was even in use. Originally the suitcase was a simple brown suitcase, but it was replaced with an alligator skin suitcase in 1932.
