I recently purchased this tin 0-4-0 loco w/ tender on eBay- it was sold as “Bub NOT Bing”.
My questions are:
Who produced the loco and tender?
Year of production for the loco?
alterations to the loco?
Picture of both the loco and tender:
Comparing the gears, brush plate, and style of the loco certainly appears to look like it’s a Bub 3 rail electric- with a modification that added a 3rd rail pick-up roller. Pics below:
Side with gears, looks like Bub 3 rail electrics I’ve examined. Dome on top is silver
The biggest enigma- this logo:
Top has the letters “ML” followed by a superscript “D”
Below is another L, with England underneath
Help is very MUCH appreciated!!
