The J19s many of them still stamped with the ACE Loco others with it overpainted were sold in Darstaed boxes with a large red sticker with 'Vintage' printed in black on it covering the Darstaed name. This was meant to cover the theft of our work in progress in 2008 under the pretence they were too difficult to make. This was an outright lie a feature of the way this factory turned producer has operated since 2009.

These were all stolen from ACE production who had ordered them and paid for the tooling. They were then sold by Darstaed dealers who did not ask any questions
