This is the interior of the house seen in the previous picture, but serves to illustrate the interior of all metal-fronted No 40s, because the layout remained unchanged throughout the model's production run. (This photo copyright: Susanne).

The layout could hardly be more simple!


It has a proud history, though! This very simple 2-room layout has a long tradition in the smaller Lines Bros' houses, going all the way back to the short-lived DH/Z in 1919, which may be seen in the first photo in Vol 1 of the Tri-ang database. Other 2-room houses from 1919 were the DH/W and DH/Y (there are no examples of these models in the database). In addition, the DH/X may also have had two plain rooms, but no example of this model has ever been seen, to date.

No fewer than 17 further models from the 1920s and 30s had just two plain rooms: both versions of the DH/A (1921-23 and 1924-30), the DH/B (1921-23 and 1924-30), the DH/C (1921-23 and 1924-29) and the DH/O (1922-23 and 1924-30), the earlier version of the DH/D (1921-23), all four of the 1930s Pixie, Nest, Elfin and Nook series, all-wood No 40 (1934-36) and three from the 20s series: Nos 20, 21 and 22 (all 1937-38). With the metal-fronted No 40 seen here, a total of 21 known models (plus, possibly the DH/X) were this simple.

Many of the pre-WWII models may be seen in Vol 1 of the Tri-ang database.
