This is a Lone Star Loco model of a D5900 engine produced between 1960-1965 available in 000 (approximately N-gauge) gauge as part of the Lone Star "Treble-O-Lectric" range of diecast models in both powered and unpowered versions. Lone Star Treble-O-Lectric trains essentially introduced the concept that would later become British "N" gauge - 10 years ahead of the competition. This model is painted in the British Rail livery.
