The photos form part of the description, please study them carefully. And use alongside my advert text to satisfy yourself on the condition of the item. Hornby R181 Thomas The Tank Engine Set. Original vintage version from the 1980's!Unused, and still in lovely original condition. It was still mostly wrapped in the original cellophane, but I have removed this to inspect and repack track correctly that had moved in storage. Thomas loco now tested, and runs nicely, although one traction tyre had perished. All contents in lovely fresh original condition, really nice items; although Thomas' boiler top has discoloured slightly (they all did this). Sure to be a future classis, there can't be many left in this original condition!
Controller is old, so I recommend having it tested before use. Please look in my shop for other O gauge track and stock. AND SUBSCRIBE TO MY NEWSLETTER FOR MORE GREAT MODEL TRAINS. IN A SELECTION OF SCALES. TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.I use the standard collectable classification ratings as follows below; these are subjective to a certain extent and opinion may differ a small amount on exactly which bracket an item falls in. I do my best to describe items fairly although it is possible to miss small faults occasionally. The mention of one fault does not necessarily imply the absence of others. If I think an item is one the borderline of 2 categories I will mention as such. The photos also form part of the description so please make sure you study them closely, I provide between 5 and 10 photos of each item from all angles so you see exactly what you are purchasing. It is impractical to describe in written text every fault/mark; if you can see them in a photo then I won't always include that in the text. (Could have been used but still no marks).
NEAR MINT ; only minor marks, few in number, may well look perfect until you look very closely. EXCELLENT ; nice bright condition, but could have more noticeable marks or a little minor damage(say to one or two pieces of trim). GOOD ; fit for purpose on a layout; i. Runs and can be used, but could have lots of small marks and/or more damage. FAIR ; lots of damage, will need some work to bring up to standard.
POOR; really only suited for spares or major repair. All items will be securely and safely packaged for transit; I use tissue paper, bubble wrap and stout card to ensure every item will reach you in the condition it leaves me.

I generally sell very good used model trains and always test any locos before offering them for sale.
However I can't guarantee that once they have left me they will work perfectly forever. If an item has a problem a week or a month after the sale it is your responsibility.Used model trains do sometimes need a little repair or maintenance and that is your responsibility once a sale has been completed.
