Old John English die cast locomotives when I aquired the two pacifics they had to be stripped and painted. Assembly followed disasembly. The kits were very simple. boiler, frame, axels, side rods, main rods, wheel retainer plate, trailing truck, lead truck, motor and that is the locomotive part. All detaily were cast on. a no frills locomotive. One loco has valve gear. The first photo shows the two locomotives taken apart. All parts were cleaned, painted then reasembed.
