I am looking at a few Dockside Switchers, advertised as NIB. Some of these last appeared in the 2002 catalogue.
I have never had a problem with a NIB locomotive I have bought, even those that are pretty old. They have all been diesels.
But, for a little steam loco like this, any thoughts on whether 22 years in a box will have an adverse effect?
Would I be better of buying a used one, in VG+ condition, from a trusted source?
