Another great model,an original 3 rail Trix Transpennine DMU with slightly modified p/ups with a drawing pin head for them to cope with Dublo points & also a marklin skate in the brake second wired to the motor.

I can't remember what I paid for this one, but I do remember thinking it was very cheap at the time. I think it was a bit less than £50, maybe £40, and the postage was charged at cost only. I converted it to three rail using a Marklin skate. I have an A H Peppercorn waiting in the wings for the same treatment.

I finished this one in the last few weeks,a Kitmaster/Dapol kit body on a modiified Dublo Barnstaple chassis,the tender body was an exact fit on the Dublo tender chassis.Finshed as 92 Squadron in the early 1948 livery.
