ULTRASCALE WHEELS, LIGHTS, DUAL MOTORS, DCC READY; Lima Class 40 D233 ‘Empress of England’
Preowned, in excellent condition. A real handful and a candidate of what must’ve been hours of work. Part of a deceased estate collection full of locos like this.
Equipped with the venerable wheels of Ultrascale; with superfine flanges suitable for modern track and no traction tyres offering superior traction, pick up and track cleanliness. The model has also been modified with a second motor for some serious torque and pulling power; makes a good noise but runs very well.
Also modified to be 8 pin DCC ready – we’d recommend a 2 amp chip – and with lights in direction of travel as well as cab lights. Coupling is not NEM, fan-end buffer beam detailed.
Box in good condition with fair corner and edge wear. Fret of headcode discs included.
Model condition 8/10 Box condition 7/10
