Hornby R056 BR Britannia Class 4-6-2 Loco 70047 Iron Duke

Produced for the Freemans catalogue in 1975 this example is crisp and mint with evidence of very limited use only (probably on Xmas day only and then packed away) and would be impossible to better unless an example could be found that had not been used. This was the last of the Britannia models produced by Hornby using the Triang Hornby chassis and tooling from 1961 and is without smoke deflectors or tender ladder to keep production costs to a minimum for Freemans. An interesting model in a very diesirable condition.   

Triang R241 Military Bogie Well Wagon with Tank Load

An original green Triang tank with friction motor on a brown bogie well wagon 41913 all having a mint appearance on the track in an original complete and correct box. Friction motor works fine although some dirt and dust do would benefit from a service otherwise as good an example as you will get .

Triang R253 Dock Shunter 0-4-0 Diesel Loco red 3


Body in crisp mint condition with printwork 100% and with working headlight tested and a good runner. Has had some previous operating time otherwise has the look of a mint example on the track in its original box having minor tape damage on one end flap otherwise complete and with unmarked instructions dated 1963 and service centre booklet.    

Triang Hornby R855 LNER Class A3 4-6-0 Loco 4472 Flying Scotsman

The original 1968 model in the plastic vacuum tray style packaging with the card wrap would benefit from clean as dusty in places otherwise loco is complete undamaged and a good runner with printwork 99% (bits of white lining missing from steam cylinders) with packaging including original instructions dated 1969 with a vacuum tray having no obvious damage and with plain card wrap being intact with a price marked in pencil of 109/-. When cleaned up this will be a very nice example of this classic Triang Hornby product.

Hornby R288 BR Class 47 Diesel Loco 47620 Windsor Castle in Intercity executive grey livery

This loco when offered for sale by Hornby in the late 1980's was offered with a choice of names and numbers to be applied by the owner and this example was named Windsor Castle. The number line is imperfect otherwise the body is crisp mint and the loco is a good runner unboxed.
