Triang Princess Elizabeth weathered...must see.

Welcome to my listing for a unique Tri-ang Princess Elizabeth.

This is a model from the 1950's that has been wethered, it looks the part and has been out on the layout ever since being completed.

It has just had a quick waft of a few colours with the airbrush and a little drybrushing in places. I have also removed the couplings and fitted very discreet fine wire couplings from the buffers and added vacuum hoses front and back. The couplings are compatible with any tensionlock of standard height, the work with auto uncouplers too. In fact I think they work a lot better than the original MK2 couplings that were fitted, the outline of the loco certainly hasn't lost anything in their absense!

She works fine, fast or slow forwards or backwards and stays on the track. Inside she is all original and complete, the brush holder has been repaired and works fine, but for the sake of £1.50 and a rivet should really be replaced at some point. Brushes were replaced under 10 hours running ago.

Comes with new white replacement box.

You may be interested in some of my other items since I am having a massive clearout of my working collection. Many more locomotives, coaches and DMU's from Hornby, Lima, Bachmann and Tri-ang are either in my other listings or in the process of being listed.
