lima class 55 deltic 55020 Nimbus in rail blue livery. Fitted with etched nameplates and heavily but plausibly weathered to a good standard. Has detailed buffer beam to one end. Nimbus is one of the less common releases.

Gave motor a clean and lubrication and it now runs in both directions but would benefit from longer to bed in. Baby was in bed so could not ‘open the throttle’ as these old Lima locomotives are noisy! The loco needs traction tyres as these are missing and it regularly comes to a halt under its own weight. Wheels would benefit from a clean to remove the dirt. Traction tyres are available cheaply on eBay. Only other fault I can see is that the body lugs are worn and if handled carelessly it pops off.

Please see photos as they form a major part of the description. I have been as honest as able.

Please see my other model railway items and good luck.

Just had a chance to apply full power. Motor operates well just needs a good clean and run to bed in and become smoother. Definitely needs traction tyres as it often roars loudly whilst stationary!

Forgot to mention I think the horns are upgraded aftermarket pieces as I cannot recall the standard Lima issue having them.
