Well it has arrived and is very rough... I could see where a previous owner had painted over the decal, unfortunately the paint and decal are stuck together, and I will not be able to uncover it safely, but it is definitely badged “Hobbies”

Another collector says this makes 6 that he knows of and that there may be less of these than the MM Twin (the engine MFSteam used for the MF Twin). This uses the same size boiler as the twin.



“Hobbies”
