Central Brazil restaurant car
This type of restaurant car (type RT7) is most likely to have been in service during the 1920s and 1930s, during the era of the grand style of travel. The main part of the Central Brazil Railway is the 300-mile line between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
The scale model includes interior features in some detail. Its dimensions are: 159cm length x 56cm width x 134cm height, including free-standing glass case.
It was made in 1924 by Twining Models Limited. This has been established by Mr S. Buck, who is researching the life of Ernest Twining.
The model was restored by B. Payne and Son of Tyseley.
