Jouef 839


Whimsical D-2705 shunter (English type?)


New in 1962

This one bothered me at most with its bad electrical contacts, its crooked transmission and its motor that seemed to work only on-off. I had filed its footsteps because it exceeded the gauge in my station. That beats everything for a supposedly British machine!

It did not live long, and here is what remains (no more motor, no more transmission)… an empty shell…

See a copy in good condition (but my picture is sharper…) on the Les trains Jouef website by Philippe Galaup.
