Bonds 00 gauge M7. Heavy brass construction. A bit too tall - probably because original Bonds mechanisms were vertical and also rather tall. However, this model has an early Zenith or early Tri-ang motor. Don't know whether this is original. Can anyone post some more Bonds 00 pictures?

Bonds OO locos are quite rare, the quantities made were very low, coaches were made in much higher amounts. The later ones used Romford motors in the main, but there was a lot of variation as the production was patchy compared to the 0 gauge productions.

Unfortunately not able to oblige with Bonds. A manufacturer that I have no products from.

Appreciate the pictures, please keep them coming!

Bonds Castle, inexplicably having suffered crude removal of cab steps and loss of outside 4th pickups!

Here is a pre war Bonds 3F tank unfortunately at present declining to run.

Clearly repainted as shown by the exposed primer.

Illustrating that Hamblings were not the only maker to apply incorrect liveries, herewith pictures of a very old Bonds 0-6-2 tank in LMS livery but in shape looking more like a Taff Vale locomotive.

Which was a design that they had in common with the L&Y I believe.

Couple of things relating to Bond's, a company that I haven't taken much notice of when scanning old ads as they always seemed to feature O Gauge which isn't a real interest of mine sorry to say.

 

However, here is an advert from 1950 MRN for an OO 0-6-0 mech.

And here is the 'Bond's' motor (or at the very least, a Bond's style motor) from my 'Mystery Manchester Prairie' which runs very well and quietly.
