The 55?  Only if you're modelling in more like TT scale, it was huge  :D

I had one. To be fair it was one of my best running Lima locos (though that's not saying much!)  I don't remember it dying so must have been sold when I went foreign.  Almost tempted to pick one up cheap on ebay just for the display case of N gauge history.

I’ve got a couple of these, one I’ve had since I was a kid, used to race it around the dog-bone N gauge board I had, until it ran off the end one day and the chassis snapped as it hit the floor of my grandads loft....

Those were the days... 😂

I detect a pang of nostalgia there....  ;)

I think you mean the smell of burning plastic.
