Paid of Lima class 33s - refurb, retire or sell?

Rate this question



I've a pair of Lima class 33s in CIE black and tan livery which I've had in storage probably for 20 or more years, possibly even 30 years (my memory is unsure when I bought them). Question is are there any bits I could install, modify or change to make them run more smoothly like modern models (i.e. all wheel pickup, smoother drive, slow speed and creep, etc)? Or should I just retire them to my 'nostalgia' collection, or even sell them? Lima sold them as CIE 001/C class look-a-likes, but the three windows on the Lima's look all wrong compared to the two large inset windows on real 001/C locos. Has anybody modified them with more modern Lima drive chassis, or drive bogies?


Typo - Title should read 'PAIR of Lima ....'
