An impressive large painted wooden train and carriages by Lines Bros. Ltd of Merton, London.
There are the usual scuffs, marks, wear and tear you would expect from a 'play-worn' item of this age and material, which all adds to it's charm and appeal. Left unrestored to maintain it's originality and authenticity, the tinplate wheels all rotate on their axles, although the larger grey carriage is missing it's 'couplers'. The Lines Brothers and LMS details to the sides of the train are present and legible and the original paint still has good depth of colour. As well as appealing to vintage toy collectors this scarce train set would make a great decorative item in a vintage interior setting.

Large grey carriage: 31cm long, 11cm wide, 19cm high. Smaller grey carriage: 31cm long, 11cm wide, 13cm high.
