As far as I can ascertain this double deck of playing cards date to around 1951. The Diesel Model pictured on the cards is GM1 named after the Prime Minister of Australia The Hon. ROBERT GORDON MENZIES. This train did the Trans Austtralia route and the carriages were of wooden construction. The pack is complete and features two different decks....a day pic and a night one. The box is complete...a little worn ..and the hinge tape has been replaced.
