A boxed diecast gauge 0-compatible Shepherd Set (Dinky Toys No.6) consisting of a shepherd, sheepdog and four sheep.
The box lid has two shades of green, and the box card back (to which the items are attached) is plain blue.
It's perhaps a sign of how much society and industry have changed since the 1930s that when these sets were produced, it must have seemed entirely natural that one of the first accessories that people would need alongside their train sets was a shepherd.
