Bachmann 31-117DC DCC Sound 4-6-0 Standard Class 4MT Loco & Tender BR Black 75074. The Loco was fitted with sound by Olivia's Trains approximately 4 years ago and still sounds absolutely cracking. As can be seen, the Tender which once had the earlier lion on wheel BR totem, has been re-transferred to the later BR totem. Although this has been done professionally and correctly finished with a new coat of matt varnish, the previous owner must have started using the Loco before the varnish had properly cured. As a result, there are a few small scuffs to the newer coat of varnish.
They are only very minor scuffs and you have to look quite close to see them clearly. However, I thought they were definitely worth mentioning, although they are mainly on one side only. Therefore if it was to be permanently run, opposite side facing, you would never notice any marks. However, if it was mine I would just give the tender top a quick spray with some more matt varnish. The Loco has also been fitted with a fully working oil lamp to the top of the smokebox door, which is operated via one of the function buttons.Incidentally, I have been using a Hornby Elite Controller to test each of these Locos, during which time the only thing I have altered is the Loco's address. As a result, they are all now set to their default address of 003. As can be seen, the Loco and Tender have also been weathered to the very highest of standards and as such, look absolutely lovely, whether slowly shunting around the shed, or pulling a healthy rake of wagons. Unfortunately, due to the marks on the Tender, I would currently only describe that as very good plus to excellent. The box is in superb condition, complete with all relevant paperwork, unopened bag of detailing and original DCC chip. Unfortunately the original owner, having operated his layout from a designated touch screen computer - utilising Hornby's E-Link system, did not keep any of his Olivia's Sound function sheets. However, I'm sure you will soon get to grips with the Loco's wide array of sounds.
A superb & truly cracking item indeed. Technically this should not apply to the re-sale of second hand items, such as mine, although I have a funny feeling that this particular caveat, may not always be adhered to.. Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to say a rather large'Thank You', to each & every one of my loyal customers - past, present & future for your continued patience and understanding.The item "BACHMANN OLIVIAS DCC SOUND 31-117DC STD CLASS 4MT BR BLACK PRO WEATHERED EXLNT+" is in sale since Thursday, July 8, 2021.
