My latest US acquisition
« on: October 04, 2021, 07:34:26 am »
I purchased this Doll drive model from US eBay on the 12th of this month and it made its way down and was delivered before lunch today; needless to say it was given a makeover and video recorded before supper time.
It did look a mess but they accepted my offer of US$202 plus shipping.

A lovely rarity this one, and you did a fine job cleaning it up!

Well done, and thanks for sharing Walter.

Nice work getting it "tuned" up & working correctly Walter. This is the 1st & only one I've seen.

I have never seen the bell tower before. Thanks for showing the tower here, Walter. A very good buy.

Does anyone have any idea in which period the production took place?
Cheers

There was a topic about it on the Mamod Forum Jürgen, you might have missed it so here is a link, Some of the fellow from your side of the planet have catalogue entries about it,
