1940s Railway Strong Box-Great Side Table or Seat

I had to buy this Railway Strong Box as although I know nothing about Railways it just makes the coolest seat or side table.....Dating to the 1940s it is in complete original condition with FANTASTIC original paint. So many pieces today are painted to look like this but this is completely genuine.

The writing is on the front and both sides. There are two large cast iron carrying handles. The top only lifts up about 4" to an internal scoop? the bottom drawer is locked and there is no key and chain is coming out of a hole. I think, and please say if I am wrong...this was used to store the daily takings. The top is like it is so once the money is in it can't be taken out from the top and the drawer locks to keep it safe inside. The chain comes out to attach the box to something so it cannot be carried away and stolen.

Anyway this is why I am selling it as a side table or seat etc. and not a useable box. However if you have a key or a skeleton key that fits that could be a different matter.

It is very heavy and so Collection or Courier UK £45 (Not including Scotland).
