Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought the darn thing. GRS UK have been advertising it for the past few months, and my uncle passed and left me a small number of GBP. As he was the one who helped my parents get me trains when I was 5 yrs old, it seems like a fitting use for his legacy!
The specs say that #3750 would be supplied in dark (“Brunswick”?) green. This one is clearly black.
Anyone shed any light on the color? Or the original retail price? It has an axle pump, which I think was an “option” for extra $$.
It’s a pre-war version, with the slatted pilot, so I am going to have to research what color and stripes the coaches should have. And whether to get some old Aristos or the new USAT Heavyweights. Questions, always questions. . .
