This is a drivers "snap tin" or lunch box that was the property of North Eastern Railway steam driver Ron Bell of Malton Shed. Does anyone know of or have any information about Mr Bell?

Hello Andy did you recently purchase the box from Phiip Smith at Sleights as he showed me a photo of the same tin/box. im dead jealous you've beaten me again!
Joking apart there was a exactly same lunch box from Darlington works at Talisman auction at NewrK in November this year that sold I think £90.00 nice item !

Yes, an early Christmas present bought from Phil. The lunch boxes were made by a company in Grimsby for various railway companies and there are a few around. I think the value is dependant on whether they have a shed name or not and maybe if they have a drivers name which is often traceable.
