Rare early constructional Hornby O Gauge Clockwork Tender Locomotive, RN 2710 ( running number on brass plaques ) in GN green. Made in 1922 to 1923 this loco has brass buffers at both ends, although they are matched pairs the front are different to the back, and it also has a brass dome. The tender has large drop link couplings, thin axles and pair of brass buffers on the back, which are a slightly different style to the locomotive. The tender appears to be a marriage with the top half being from 1923/1924 as is has 1923 decals but doesn't have embossing as per the 1924 version. The top is attached to a 1926 style base with tabs as well as constructional style nut and bolts. There are two likely explanations for this, either it was created by the Binns Road Service Department as repair/replacment circa 1926 or it is a much later enthusiasts work. Please inspect the photos carefully so you can make your own decision, please feel free to ask questions or request further photos before purchasing. Loco is tested and in good working order. The locomotive is in excellent condition for its age with some minor wear, the tender is excellent condition. Boxed together in a reproduction box. Please be aware that no key is supplied with this beautiful example of a rare locomotive. Please examine the photos for this listing very carefully as they form part of the description.
