That looks as if it may be part Archangel.

I see this is up for a third time but with the name Archangel thrown in for good measure.

Nice engine built by a well respected and competent builder and not many made so they don't often come up for sale.

I think if I had one to sell, this is the sort of figure I would be advertising it at to see if anyone bit with the understanding that I might take a lower offer.

When you get items like this come up for sale it is really hard to set a value.

Although I agree that just because something is old it doesn't make it valuable. The number of 80 year old Hornby engines or pre-war cameras I have had through my hands or been offered are a testament to that.

"You're into trains aren't you?"
"Errm, yes"
"What do you think of this?"
(Hands over totally b*****d Hornby No 1. tank engine, paint almost gone, rusty, wheels eaten by mazek rot, spring shot.)
"Errm"
"Wazzit worth then?"
"Nothing, its scrap"
"Don't talk rubbish, its old........."
