Restoration of this model would pretty much require stripping the paint, sanding the model and applying a whole new paint job and lettering to it.
I don't know if the model would be worth the cost of having it done professionally.

If that is a 4029, you can find one in good condition for under EUR 20.

Hi Mike,

It has arrived in a stock of three Signals (one with bulb broken) and with 2 5206 (working fine) and a couple of 5117 (working), all in their orginal box. I use the coach just among a long train...BigGrin BigGrin
