Bachmann 31-051 J72 Class 0-6-0T, no. 69023, working, EXCELLENT boxed condition
An excellent working example of the Bachmann Branch-Line J72 tank loco in green BR livery. Just one m inor defect (see under 'condition' below), attributable to the slightly lower material quality inherent in the Branch-Line series. Made, I believe, in the early 1990s. The loco is su pplied in its original box, with styrene insert and constructional diagram .
Note that the hand rails along the length of the boiler are full length on one side, half length on the other. This how the model was made, nothing is missing !
Condition
Please study the photos and note the following points....
the loco runs smoothly in both directions and at all speeds. I would advise, given the loco's age and probable years spent in storage, that (despite it's lovely running) a thorough clean and lubrication be undertaken before any prolonged use. cosmetically the sole defect concerns the handrails along the boiler sides and cab rear, which all show signs of some li ght rust . Otherwise the body work is in excellent condition, with all decals as new and no mar ks or dings.
couplings and buffers are present and correct. the box is in very good condition, still bea ring its original Beatties price tag (£26.50)
