An opportunist purchase from Hattons. Silver Fox body on what sounds like a newish Hornby 5 pole motor. Very smooth, quiet and romped effortlessly on 8Mk1s. I had bought an unfinished one with a Lima chassis a few months ago, but will now sell it on eBay, as this one is better than I could achieve.
Although it has transfers for the numbers and I had bought etched ones for the unfinished one, I think I'll leave it as it is, and sell the etched numbers on, as the transfers are neatly
A possible scenario if through trains had continued over the S and D for a bit longer, stalwarts such as a 7F mix with some diesels that could conceivably have appeared. Don't take it too literally, it's just a "what if".
