O gauge 7mm SCRATCHBUILT Duchess of Hamilton BR LMS Green 46229 Slaters Wheels
The photos form part of the description, please study them carefully. And use alongside my advert text to satisfy yourself on the condition of the item. Duchess of Hamilton BR (ex-LMS) Green 46229. Reasonably well built from the usual mix of brass and white-metal, some good detail in an early fine-scale style, but some errors and messy bits also, please look at the photos. It is a fast powerful runner, with a strong motor, with flywheel.
It wasn't too keen on curves though, there isn't much flexibility in the chassis, the rear pony truck sometimes derails. It has Slaters drive wheels. There are some marks to the finish etc, and the paint isn't perfect. There are some small bits of trim missing, steps etc. NOT a pristine example of the Duchess, but unusual to get one in this price range, and it will still look fine pulling a long rake of coaches round a garden railway.Please look in my shop for other O gauge locos and stock.

I do my best to describe items fairly although it is possible to miss small faults occasionally. The mention of one fault does not necessarily imply the absence of others. If I think an item is one the borderline of 2 categories I will mention as such. The photos also form part of the description so please make sure you study them closely, I provide between 5 and 10 photos of each item from all angles so you see exactly what you are purchasing.It is impractical to describe in written text every fault/mark; if you can see them in a photo then I won't always include that in the text. (Could have been used but still no marks). NEAR MINT ; only minor marks, few in number, may well look perfect until you look very closely. EXCELLENT ; nice bright condition, but could have more noticeable marks or a little minor damage(say to one or two pieces of trim). GOOD ; fit for purpose on a layout; i. Runs and can be used, but could have lots of small marks and/or more damage. FAIR ; lots of damage, will need some work to bring up to standard. POOR; really only suited for spares or major repair. All items will be securely and safely packaged for transit; I use tissue paper, bubble wrap and stout card to ensure every item will reach you in the condition it leaves me. Please bear this is mind when comparing prices. Please check my feedback for the quality of items I sell, the accuracy of description and standard of packaging. I pride myself on only ever having completely satisfied customers. If you have a problem please dont hesitate to get in touch before leaving feedback and I will resolve any problems for you. If an item has failed to arrive in the expected time please inform me as soon as possible so I can investigate, and or provide suitable advice on how to proceed. Budget options such as 2nd class and Hermes can sometimes take up to a week so sometimes a bit of patience is required with them. I generally sell very good used model trains and always test any locos before offering them for sale. However I can't guarantee that once they have left me they will work perfectly forever. If an item has a problem a week or a month after the sale it is your responsibility. Used model trains do sometimes need a little repair or maintenance and that is your responsibility once a sale has been completed.
