A painted tinplate Continental tram's trailing Summer-Car made in gauge 1 by George Carette, some time around ~1904.

The car has four wheels and a vurved brown roof.

The upper part of the tram' sides are open and windowless, depicting the sort of trailing car that would be used in nice weather in the summer months.

The roof sides have with rectangular rounded-cornered designation boards with raised red lining, and the tram sides have rectangular grey panels with raised red lining and central "GC" crest, both matching the corresponding detailing on the Carette tramcar alongside.
