This model is the Glam Toy Products GTP-568 Locomotive in GTP Express livery of red cab, green boiler and yellow detailing.

The model has a one-piece, pressed metal body, 125mm in length. It has been shaped with rudimentary representations of the body lines and boiler features. There is no glazing - all the features are litho-printed onto the body. At the front are representations of the boiler plate, buffers and lamps. To the sides the green boiler is outlined with yellow rivets and body trim and it carries a curved name plate "G.T.P. Express" in white text on a black background. The lower sides are in red with yellow body lines and "G.T.P. 568" lettering in black on a yellow background. The cab and roof is predominantly red with a black edge line and printed windows in grey on each side of the boiler and cab. The rear carried a black "opening" to the upper rear cab on which are printed white gauges and lever while the lower portion is in red with black chain and rear buffers. Unlike all the other GTP models this does not bear the legend "Made in England" anywhere on the body or base.

The original two part, pressed tin wheels are still on the model , mounted on steel axles with crimped ends.

The baseplate is a single piece, pressed tin unit shaped with a strengthening panel down the centre line. It has been press fitted to the body and the edges rolled to hold it over the edges of the body. There are no manufacturer's marks or country of origin details on the base.

I do not know exactly when this item was issued but believe it to be between 1950 and 1959.

Item: 2831
