Toy railway carriage

Toy railway carriage, 'Gold Chief' Victorian Railways' 'Spirit of Progress', 0-gauge, metal, made by Maurlyn Manufacturing Pty Ltd, Redfern, NSW, 1951-1957 This railway carriage is from a Victorian Railways' 'Spirit of Progress' toy train which comprised a steam locomotive, tender and two carriages. It was marketed under the trade name 'Gold Chief'. The carriage is made from two sheet-steel pieces. The body forms one piece and includes the roof and sides. The second piece is formed from the chassis and ends which are tabbed together. The carriage has embossed doors at either end with thin, vertical cut-out windows, while the body has four horizontal cut-out windows on each side. The carriage is carried on two, disc wheel bogies of four wheels each. It is finished in blue paint with horizontal yellow stripes above and below the windows. The couplings are Hornby-type automatic ones.
