A small diecast blue and green motorcycle and sidecar, Police Motorcycle Patrol, Dinky Toys 42b.

The cycle and sidecar both have policemen. The sidecar is green with the seating cockpit filled in (anti-weather tarpaulin?) and painted blue, with just the second policeman's head emerging.

This was introduced in the 1930s as part of set 42, which included the motorcycle pair, a standing policeman, a policeman with white high-visibility traffic coverall, and a police box.

Location

The duo are displayed on a section of country road (Hornby Countryside Section H), on the far left of the Hornby Wall display.
