Here we have a vintage O Gauge Leeds (LMC) GCR Robinson Class B2 LNER 4-6-0 "City of London" Locomotive and Tender with R/N 5427 as shown. This is a 6-8 volt Electric 3-Rail with central pickup. The motor runs great and is really strong. The lined livery comes in LNER green with LNER decals to sides of tender and the R/N's to the cabsides. The loco has had some paintwork re-done and touch-in over the years with the boiler totally repainted and not lined. This loco was manufactured in 1922 so given its age and use its come through pretty well and been sympathetically cleaned up to look the part. It sits on the track and looks really nice and she runs with real power. As can be seen all decals are legible including the R.F. Stedman crest located below the smoke box and apart from some handling scratches to the tender and splashers she looks in really good shape.  All running gear and wheels are nice and intact with little signs of wear and they appear to be completely original. The front bogie appears to be a replacement and the throw guide has an add-on (small meccano strip) so its sits correctly on the track. All couplings (sprung hook and chain type) and all buffers are intact and in good shape. One of the forward steps has been re-affixed and not particularly well so this will need some attention but a relatively minor issue. All in all, a really nice rare locomotive that is sure to be right up someones street. The piece is un-boxed but will of course be boxed and well packed for shipping. Please look carefully at the photos and ask any questions if you are unsure of anything.
