Lima mk1

Holy Cow. I have ten of  those in the attic. I did actually burn the boxes about 40 years ago cause they were taking up too much space (ie clutter). How on earth can a lima 5h1t heap of that era and that standard of 1970s be worth more than an A class or a 121 loco? The couplings seem the size of a horse shoe and the wheels could cut pizza. Desparate heaps, but back in 1977 I thought they were the bees knees and the cats whiskers.

Here are 3 of them in the branch station taken about 1978



And two more with a repainted hornby running between baseboards

Hi all

Something more like $60.00 AU or thirty UK pounds is more like a reasonable price for those.

That's an at that price you may put it back on the shelf thanks.

Given the need to purchase new after market commonwealth bogies that allow the easy fitting of NEM couplings ( they do exist).

regards John
