HO Scale Brass PFM United Baltimore & Ohio 0-8-0 FIXER-UPPER

109.00

This is the HO Scale Brass PFM United Baltimore & Ohio 0-8-0 made in Japan. This is a FIXER-UPPER model. It’s only had one (1) previous owner, is graded as USED with mostly clean wheels but some obvious running time, the model does NOT run very well at all account that the rubber tubing between the open frame motor and gearbox is petrified. The motor does run but the tubing needs to changed out. To get this model running again you’ll need to locate a replacement tubing and install between the motor and gear box. The boiler front has had parts removed. Those parts are NOT included. Making work again and finding parts to complete the smoke box front is on the buyer. Model is sold AS-IS, AS-DESCRIBED, NO RETURNS ALL SALES FINAL. Original box, replacement foam, boiler weight has been installed inside the locomotive. We always recommend that if you plan to operate the model (after replacing the tubing in this case) that you clean the gear box and re-grease, and make sure that you clean minimally the wheel treads on each axle to maximize electrical pick-up. IMPORTANT: Please see the link on our home page in the Brass Model Services section called OPTIMIZING “New-Old-Stock” BRASS MODEL TRAINS for more information about proper care and cleaning of the wheels and the electrical contact surfaces on these older models in order to be able to run them on your layout. All wheel treads will oxidize a bit and need to be cleaned with naphtha in order for the model to run better on track. This model is straight 12vdc, open frame motor, no lights, exactly as imported. Price INCLUDES USPS Priority Mail Insured Shipping with Signature Confirmation to the lower 48 States. If you have any questions please drop us a line or give us a call. Thanks for looking today. Cheers!
