Probably a failed project.

You should be able to revert to the original wiring and make her work.

Hi Ian,

Very nice Ae 3/6 in excellent condition. ThumpUp
Perhaps this Swiss electric is bit shadowed by the Croc, but I consider it as lovely and enjoyable as the Croc.
And great photos in daylight. ThumpUp

I saw on one of the videos the brown Croc running on your layout, but now after your comments I presume this was someone's model at the Club running...

Hi Andrey,

Yes you're right, the brown Croc was a club members Loco.

We've also had a much older green Croc on the layout.

Hi Ian,

Quote:

Sounds fairly cheap to me even for the times, maybe it was used ?
The 1958 price for an 8F 2-8-0 was 84/- ( £4.20 I think ) so DOM would be the same or more expensive.
I bought one in about 1960 and as you can see from your photos the loco and tender were boxed separately and together they came to about £5 as this was my birthday money then.
The 8F was permanently connected to the tender as the centre rail pickups were on the tender.

Here is the webpage I found it on but the whole site may be interesting to a Hornby collector.

http://meccano.magazines...l/1958/5809/5809_n01.htm

Heres the main site.

http://meccano.magazines.free.fr/index.htm


Hope it is useful.
Regards, Colin.

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the information. ThumpUp

You're right, that would have been the 2nd hand price + the tender, we'll never know. Smile

She cost me £41 two weeks ago and I thought that was a good price.

I only started collecting HD last year, so I'm just learning as I go along....ThumpUp

Beautiful Duchess of Montrose Ian.
They are beautifully engineered and apart from the coal in the tender not a bit of plastic anywhere.
Adjustable end float on the armature and end float controlling ball bearings too. they run very nicely if well maintained and also if neglected too!
Very expensive at the time though which is probably why Lines Brothers with the Triang brand captured the market from them in the sixties.
One problem you may have with Dublo is weak magnets. They were very early with the introduction of DC motors and small permanent magnet technology was a bit limited. Most dealers at the time had a remagnatiser.
Its not really a problem these days as neo magnets of the right dimensions can be had easily on ebay. Usually the original magnets are fine but you do come across the occasional rogue one.

I've got a soft spot for HD as my first electric train when I was four was a second hand collection. Their model range was a bit limited though both rolling stock, locomotives and track sections.

Enjoy

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks. ThumpUp

Yes, I've seen the magnets on e-bay.

It's less than a year since I started buying some track for putting a small layout together, and know very little about HD apart from there track looking very similiar to the early (1930's) Märklin track.

It does mean that when I go to a Model Rail Show, at least I can find something to buy Smile .......very little Märklin to be found in Scotland. Sad

Hi Ian, really great looking Lok! I love the gray/black finish. A Dutch class act for sure.

Hi Peter,

Thanks. ThumpUp

Yes, I also like the Grey/Black colours, I have a few other Loco's with that colour scheme.

Hi Ian,

"double act" is beautiful!
I liked colours, solid front wheels and Wagner deflectors.
Also I noticed that tenders are not full of coal as they are usually modelled.
Great photography, as always. ThumpUp

Hi Andrey,

Thanks. ThumpUp

Another nice touch is the coal in the tender is lower towards the front, where it's being drawn from.

Hi Ian,
I love the elegance of those old electrics. Something we never really had in the UK since the 'modern' designs were already laid down by the time we starting building them.

Hi Marco,

Yes, the box and Loco are in very good condition, I like the twin pantographs at one end and single at the other.

Hi Paul,

There are a few vintage British electrics around. One of my favourites is the old Metropolitan Railway locos built for the Underground.

Hi Mike,

As far as I can remember, I got some of them from a shop in Michelstadt, a flea Market in Darmstadt and recently from e-bay....but for the time being the best place to find them is e-bay.de....Hope you find them sooner than you hope...Smile

Cheers,

mehmet
