You're looking at another top-quality rare investment item being sold by GEORGE’S GOOD STUFF, home of some of the finest all-original diecast and model railways vintage models and other fantastic nostalgic collectables you'll find on ebay, or indeed anywhere!
This beautiful collector's piece is an absolutely superb Hornby Railways No. R717 'Arnolds Sands' 5-Plank Wagon, OO Gauge, all original model and window box from 1980-85, in brown plastic with silver metal wheels and white lettering for Arnolds Sands of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.
Part of a large collection acquired from a private enthusiast, this Hornby Railways wagon was destined to be part of an ambitious home model rail layout that never quite got off the ground, so the model has spent its life in storage in its 1980s style red window box, never been run or even out on display!
One of many great vintage collectables and model railway locos, rolling stock, accessories and train sets now available in our ebay store ... click our logo above or below to straight there and have a good browse!
- Model condition - this great Hornby open wagon is in perfect condition, never been run, probably only ever been out of its box for our photos in the past 30 years, a superb addition to any Hornby layout 10/10
- Box condition - the red window box is showing slight signs of its long life in storage with a little crushing to the card above the window, all clean, crisp and bright with all flaps and tabs present and strong and the cellophane window intact, superb 10/10
