Hello,
I take an interest in the eastern UK railways and occasionally purchase models from old times.

This coach I purchased at auction was possibly built around 1910.

While I don't have information about Märklin models of these time perhaps some others here may have an interest.
I is an O gauge model of a non-corridor coach of the Great Northern Railway whose mainline ran from London to York.
It is definitely pre-1920, and likely pre-1914.

It was built by Märklin for Gamages a toy retailer in London. Most of the door handles are missing but the lithography showing the polished wood finish is in such good condition it is surprising for a 100 year old item.
The underside is stamped Gamages, and here is the Märklin logo which shows on both ends.

HO Scale - Märklin (ep II-III and VI, C Track, digital) - 2 rail (Queensland Australia, UK, USA) - 3 rail (English Hornby Dublo) - old clockwork O gauge.
