Postage is probably fine, I think I paid around £26 to post a Wrightscale Wren a few years ago insured up to £2000.
Thanks

Postage is ok. That's about what I would have needed to pay to send a loco to other member.

OK chaps I was wrong. I've had a look at a couple of carriers and as you all say it is about the right priceI, teach me to check things before opening big mouth! I still think the postage is a lot of money though but perhaps I've got used to buying a lot on line where often the postage is free.

Hmmm... I'm almost tempted... I'm saving for a Lilla, and this is a decent price, BUT I'd need to do a full repaint to fit in with my line. And, although the current colour scheme's not to my taste, it would be a shame to slop an amateur paint job over the top of a professional one! I'll keep saving... Unless the price drops any further!

Yes, I did think that... Although Chris B's film shows one running very nicely without: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_YYMzI0r98

I need to get back on eBay, but selling rather than buying! My loco fund is a long way from the stage where I can place an order! I fancy one in green, that I can eventually line out to represent the lovely Cilgwyn Quarry livery the real thing's carried recently...

Cheers,

Andrew.

This is a rare opportunity, must be a real tiddler as it's the 7mm O gauge version [ not Narrow gauge of course ] but one straight out of the Archangel brochure,
needs a replacement dome but otherwise looks in good condition.
remember if you bid on this it will double in price by the time you've paid postage, customs duty and VAT....

Old style cylinders, faulty pressure gauge and obsolete R/C - surely under £1000 is a realistic price?

Year of manufacture 2017...

I've never liked them anyway, wouldn't want to pay more than £600 personally, the only reason I would get one is to scrap the body and make a Bowaters Chevalier out of it.

Good news for those of us who managed to get one of the original issue GRS LKM diesels:

Proves to have been a very sound investment!

Typical of most 16mm modellers who haven't ever got around to mastering the black scary art of the spray gun.
The toilet brush being the preferred paint applicator.
