History and use
The model is a Paris-Lyon-Mediterranean (PLM) 220A 4 cylinder compound locomotive. They were commonly known as 'Coupe Vents' or 'streamliners' due to their appearance.

The model's prototype locomotive is No. 145 which was built by PLM's Arles workshop in 1900. No. 145 has been preserved and is housed at the French Railway Museum at Mulhouse.

Bockholt produced this model for Fulgurex in 1988. Their Coupe Vent model was the only Bockholt model built with an motor in the tender.

The model is housed in a wooden box.

The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.

The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
