Warley is approaching and I need a reliable locomotive to run on Owen's Bridge. The"proper" Simplex is pretty worn out and I'm not sure it can be revived for a couple of days worth continuous running.
As a backup, I have a Roco 33209 "Leo" to tickle up with a bit of dirt'n'detail.
Under the basic body, the mechanicals are very nice indeed. OK, it's only a 3 pole motor but this drives quite a gear chain via a spring coupling.
What I can't find is any photos of the real loco. I'm assuming this is because Roco have freelanced the model to fit a chassis, but if not I'd like to find a photo of a prototype. Can anyone suggest anything?
