Ex GER B12 61571

Ex Great Eastern Railway B12. Connoisseur kit with ESU 3.5 decoder, Buehler motor and two stage gear box. Suethe smoke unit. Loco is fully lined under the grime. Sound is via standard 23mm speaker in boiler and a Base reflex speaker in the tender. It is a shame that such capable machines were often allowed to get in the unkempt condition as modelled here.
