I have another of my needed HObbyline items, a second B&O FA-1. I acquired it as a body only and receiving it today Put a drive in it and the necessary small parts. The last owner painted the roof black which is not HObbylines style. I will try to remove the black paint from the roof.
Here is today's FA-1 together with my first one.

The second 1955 set is #430 "The Train Maker" the repeat set from 1954. An identical set to the 1954 Train Maker A5 Conbine & 2 coaches.
The photo can be the same.
