Given the more sensible price the one in the link below went for I don't see how the one I mentioned in my previous post can be worth the starting bid:

No it's not and would probably just make that if the starting price was more reasonable, the trouble with these lady Anne's is that there are a lot of them and always the first to cast off when somebody wants to move on to something more exciting or has some resemblance to a real loco.

Another winning description:

Should anyone on here succeed in "winning" this item, I'd be happy to suggest a name:

Plenty of people seem interested, potentially a cheap way to acquire some RH running gear - and boiler? They surely can't be inspired by the poor thing's looks??

Cheers,

Andrew.

Not madness, a nice looking Regner Willi. If I hadn't recently managed to pick up a Wilma I'd be tempted.

Edit: Sold within 12 hours of listing, well that a great temptation removed.

Just Wow, no, at the price, but then let us be honest, we have all paid, at least once, over the odds on ebay.
