Exceptional museum quality model locomotives for modellers, enthusiasts and collectors

Pre-Owned Masterpiece Models

Occasionally we are asked to act as brokers for the re-sale of pre-owned Masterpiece Models. This is a discretionary service which we may decide to undertake if the model to be sold meets our demanding criteria. We reserve the right to accept or decline models for sale.

We charge a small commission for this service simply to cover our time and costs (including professionally photographing the models), but we do not profit from these sales.

Models available will be posted in this section of the Masterpiece Models website.

5047 Earl of Dartmouth

5047 4

From the original Masterpiece Models ‘Castle’ build, this stunning model of 5047 Earl of Dartmouth has been professionally weathered by Martyn Welch to create this highly realistic prortrayal of a well-cared-for, top link locomotive. It is for sale at £3,300.

New from Swindon in April 1936, 5047 was originally named Compton Castle. It was re-named Earl of Dartmouth in August 1936. The model represents the engine as it would have appeared in the 1950s with the BR 'loin-over-wheel' emblem when it was allocated to Newton Abbott and it carries the 83A shed plate. In 1957 it was transferred to Wolverhapton Stafford Road.

DCC with sound.

£3,300
