YOU ARE BIDDING ON THIS NICE VINTAGE HORNBY DUBLO LOCO WHICH IS IN GENERALLY GOOD CONDITION AND IN RUNNING ORDER

THE OVERALL PAINTWORK AND DECALS IS EXCELLENT THOUGH IT MAY BE VISIBLE IN THE SECOND PHOTO THAT THERE IS A BREAK IN THE LINE DETAIL AROUND THE RUNNING NUMBER ..THIS IS APPROX 1/4" LONG

THE MODEL RUNS ON A 2 RAIL SYSTEM AND IT HAS BEEN TESTED
IT RUNS WELL IN BOTH DIRECTIONS BUT I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THESE THINGS USUALLY BENEFIT FROM A BIT OF LUBRICATION OR A QUICK SERVICE (both of these are not my area of expertise so i wouldn't really want to try)

THERE IS SOME MINOR DAMAGE BUT THIS DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE OVERALL QUALITY OR CAPABILITIES OF THE LOCO
THE ONLY THINGS THAT I CAN SEE WRONG IS THAT ONE OF THE FRONT BUFFERS HAS BEEN BROKEN, OTHER THAN THIS THE MODEL APPEARS FINE
I DO SUSPECT THAT THE SMALL COVER PLATE ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE LOCO HAS BEEN REPLACED AS IT LOOKS TOO NEW TO BE AN ORIGINAL 1950's PIECE (it is made of shiny black plastic rather than the more usual dull material)
I DID WONDER AT FIRST IF THE MODEL HAD BEEN CONVERTED FROM A 3 RAIL TYPE TO A 2 RAIL BUT ACCORDING TO MY CATALOGUE THIS WAS ALWAYS 2 RAIL RUNNING

SORRY ABOUT THE HIGH PRICE OF P+P/ SHIPPING BUT THOSE WHO KNOW DUBLO WILL APPRECIATE THAT THEY ARE METAL BODIED LOCOS AND THEREFORE REALLY HEAVY

THE LOCO IS HERE TO BE SOLD WITH A GREAT LOW START PRICE AND NO RESERVE SO WHY NOT HAVE A BID AND GIVE YOURSELF A NEW YEAR TREAT

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR INFO AND IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED ON RECEIVING PLEASE GET IN TOUCH BEFORE JUMPING FOR THE NEGATIVE OR NEUTRAL FEEDBACK OPTION, I HAVE NO INTENTION OF SELLING DUFF GOODS AND THINGS CAN BE SORTED.
AFTER DISPATCH PLEASE LET ME KNOW THAT THE THE ITEM HAS ARRIVED AND IF ALL IS OK..THIS IS THE BEST WAY FOR BOTH PARTIES

THANKS FOR TAKING A LOOK AND HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR
