You are looking at my Original British Railways Train Drivers Snap/Lunch Box. Somtimes known as a Grimsby Box.These boxes bought by train drivers of the steam era with some being used well into the diesel days, are a nice collectable of days gone by. This box by a more unusual maker. Normally these boxes were from the Hildred supplier, so this one is just a little nicer. It also brears the brass plate of its original owner H.
Clarke, but no details as to which shed Mr Clarke was based. The box is in great condition, and has had the paintwork refreshed, and brass polished up by the previous owner. Sadly for many years it was sat on a damp shelf in a shed, so does have a few areas that have rusted through into small holes.
This does not affect the box when on display, the holes cannot be seen. The box is complete with its internal compartment for paperwork, and notices, of which a couple remain, and are included. The box measures 12" x 8" and is 9 high. So is the full sized box not the medium.
Please study all the accompanying pictures, taken outside in natural light, as they form part of the description. It is here to sell so make an offer.
If you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Alternatively, you can collect the item from me in the North West close to Jcn 22 M6.
