Tri-ang R358S Davy Crockett 2-6-0 Old Time Loco + tender, good working cond.
A nice example of Tri-ang's Old Time Loco 'Davy Crockett'. Introduced as part of the Transcontinental range (viz the TRR logo on the tender sides) and marketed in the UK from 1962-65, slightly longer in Canada and Australia. As was standard with the Dav y Crockett, this example is fitted with the synchrosmoke facility but which has NOT been tested. This item is UN boxed.
Please study the photos and note the following points....
the loco runs extremely well and smoothly in both directions and at all speeds. Nevertheless , I would advise, given the loco's age, that a thorough clean and lubrication of the chassis be undertaken before any prolonged use. the 2 crew members which would have been supplied with the loco are missing - as is the case with nearly all these locos listed on ebay (but not mentioned by any of the sellers !)
cosmetically the loco is suffering from patches of black paint loss , most noticeably at the front end of the loco (see top part of photo 2) , plus some loss of yellow paint from the side edge of the cab roof (photo 3). Otherwise the loco is in good cosmetic condition . The decals are very good (and excellent on the tender). The rear coupling bar and hook is present and correct, as are all wheelsets.
