Whimsical D-2705 shunter (English type?)

Comments

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.
