Please read carefully: the powered tender works fine, but the locomotive, which is a free rolling dummy, has side gear issues.
All bits are there, but I cannot fix it. I lack the skill.

A really nice Hornby Mallard. It has a good working powered tender, but
for somehow the %[email protected]% side gear stiffened up. I went to try to clean
and lube it, and made it worse. Totally jacked myself.

Makes a nice shelf queen, a good repair project for those with talent,
or parts. Also available are two British Pullman Coaches, NOS, for $10 a crack.
I hate to let this piece go, and the video below shows why: she ran like a
dream, and then just stiffened up from a season of sitting. I simply cannot
fix it, myself, but someone with a good hand can perhaps restore her perfectly.

I want $25 for her. For a shelf display, that's a bargain price, for someone that can
fix it, she can easily fetch $100 or more. I could just spit. Plus shipping, please. Will send
economy.

If interested, please contact me direct at [email protected].
