Trans Europ Express Rare Streamlined Plaster Train Display


Started in Holland in 1957, the Trans Europ Express trains were a cooperative between West Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands. They were first class business trains designed to take business travellers on a one way round trip, with enough time in between for business meetings. The model pictured here is the German VT 11.5 diesel train, discontinued in 1972. This painted plaster model was used in a travel agency office window display. It is in original vivid paint, with only a few minor paint chips. It is a great decorative item of a wonderful scale, and displays beautifully.
