This is the Londontoy T4 Box Car originally issued circa 1947 in orange. It is 115mm long (including couplings), 20mm wide and 34mm high. The front coupling is broken.

It is a one piece casting with all detail such as wheels, body lines and trim, etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Londontoy, T-4, Made in Canada" cast on three lines in the centre of the casting. The mold number is not readily apparent on this model. The wheels are made of pressed paper or cardboard on flat axles that pass through the wheels and are pinch-clamped to the flat columns that protrude from the body of the model.

First seen in a catalogue dated 1947, this item is thought to have been issued circa late 1947.
