I never saw one like this.
If you zoom in on the picture there are markings on top of the tunnels portal.
What do these say? Can you make them out?
What is the measurement to the top of the portal from the base? (The height of the entrance where the train would run through?)
Almost looks big enough for Standard gauge trains from the picture? Looks to be around 10/12 inch?
Where did you find it?
Almost looks like it would come from Europe from the castles on it.
I will search around.
I inserted the picture but see you found out how to insert it instead of a link.
The tunnel opening is approx 210mm high.
Wow, cant believe its been found that easy, you guys are amazing!
I have only just bought this by accident because the it looked so cool. Just at a local junk shop, manchester uk.
I am not a collector so it is available, it has a nice rust/flaky green paint patina effect.
Your welcome, that would fit in nice on a garden RR.
We have members from all over the world, I guess the majority are from the States.
That was made in Germany, I don't think you will get what the others I posted brought in at auction. Because of the shape it is in.
But maybe you can sell it to a collector over there and make a few bucks? It looks in good shape and all is there? So someone who knows what he is doing, could redo that up to make it look new.
Or someone who runs the 1 gauge will want it just like it is on his RR?
Either way it is a piece of model RR history over a 100 years old you have there. :thumbsup:
