A green clockwork toy traction engine with trailer made by Triang as part of the Minic vehicles range.

The traction engine with trailer was listed as model 54M, the traction engine on its own was model number 44M.

The model is the postwar version with a large disc flywheel (as opposed to the prewar version, which had a smaller, spoked flywheel).
