Back in the early 1970s (I think) Lima produced a model of The New South Wales Government Railways C38 class pacific. It was of the non-streamlined version (of the 30 that were built, the first 5 were streamlined). It was a pretty good RTR model for its day, although it falls well short of present day standards. Perhaps the worst aspect of the model was that the tender was wrong. Rather than making a model of a C38 tender, Lima just reused another one from their existing range - from memory I think it was from an SNCF 141R, but I'm not sure. It has been well and truly eclipsed by the recent model from Australian Railway Models, which has been commented on in this forum. I used to have one, and have often regretted parting with it all those years ago. No more, as I just bought two of them. I saw two come up for sale on eBay at a low starting price and put in bids on each. One was an unlettered black one and the other a green lined one. I was expecting one or both to go for more than my maximum bid, otherwise I would only have bid on one, but bidding for both stopped just a few dollars under my last bid. They turned out to be in better condition than I was expecting. Here is the green one: As for the black one, I'm afraid I separated the body and chassis before I thought of taking a photograph, but here is one showing the locomotive and tender chassis. The driving wheels on the right have pick-ups, as do the tender wheels on the left, the tender being electrically linked to the locomotive by the drawbar. It looks like it should be pretty straightforward to convert it to 3 rail collection. I was surprised to see that the centre driver on these models was flanged - something I had obviously forgotten about. It's the rear driver that is geared to the motor and it has minimal side-play. The front driving wheels have a bit of side-play, but the centre ones have 3mm on each side.
