Is it O.K. to list the "Wife" in this section? It is to raise funds for the new "A" class locos.

Can supply details if necessary.

No returns accepted. Doubt any returns could be envisioned owing to the charges involved.

Sound comes as  factory fitted ...unfortunately.

Is it sound-fitted?

Kadees or other couplings?

Site rules do require you to state a price.

 

Obviously, you'll have to greatly inflate that, in case she sees it, but we'll assume that you'll accept reasonable offers.

It's a complicated issue. Some of the high-maintenance ones are actually easier to off-load, if you want to trade on in the future.

Which livery?

I'd advise against JB. More than likely it will end in disappointment once you find a flaw in the shade of livery supplied after purchase :P

There's always plastic surgery, Jason......!  A new chassis and couplings could be fitted, and the whole thing clad in a new livery. Donald, for example, has accurate IE tan, though I'd be worried about where the Tippex stripes are.

Can she communicate with the controller well? Is there a decoder fitted?

Specifically, does the 'Off' switch still work?

These models tend to be challenging. They require a great deal of maintenance and can be unpredictable. Running is often pretty smooth, but can also be off and on, rough and breakdowns are inevitable. It is always advisable to keep them well oiled.

They often have a tendency to go off the rails, particularly after a period of silence.
