Roundhouse will probably do another run of this loco, when the 'Measured and Drawn' book comes out, they'd be silly not to.

This maybe sometime, as RH have closed down during the current situation, I understand my Fowler was one of the last locos sent out before they all went home.

Amazing how people pay this kind of money with a crap description and no video.

Beautiful looking loco, though well out of my "not very deep pockets"... :roll:

This looks intriguing.

From the last photo it looks like it's actually 5" gauge

But maybe the seller is trying to tell us something when he says .......

PLEASE STUDY ALL PICTURES AS THEY ARE PART OF THE DESCEPTION .

I still think he needs to add another tenner to his prices, people need to pay for quality, I've seen those GVT wagons painted up nicely they're worth £20 of anybodies money. I never understand the penny pinching attitude to buying rolling stock, 16mm scale but 'OO' prices.

Maybe because we don't all have bottomless pockets. Peter Binne is one of the better manufactures who understands that we can't all afford shed loads to pay for things. And you may find that most 16millers build their lines on a shoestring and can build from scratch some better models than the manufacturers.

£25 for something that is used...... :scratch: :scratch:

What's this, I know it costs to join the 16mm Association and for me it's good value.
But selling "The Guide to 16mm Modelling" is being a bit cheeky don't you think...

Errr... why? It is the member's personal property to do with as they wish, surely.

All of my SMTs and other Association paraphernalia (except for the Bulletin whose glossy colour pages go in the recycling box ... grrr...) are sold on within days of arrival. Why? Because after reading I have no use for them, no space to store them and their content is now available online.

Because it's free when you renew this year. I for some reason have 3 copies of it now. So if any member what's a copy. Just pay me postage and you can have one. The person on eBay wants you to pay has well P&P.......

This is another of those adds that some my think is ok, I personally don't :!: :!:

This seller must think we are really really stupid and we have no sense at all..... :withstupid:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154005316507?ul_noapp=true

You will find he has had no bids...

And it's used.. :scratch:


You can get a brand new one for £14.00 including postage.

I can't remember who it is, but someone sells the Binnie wagon kits with replacement metal wheels for less than £25!
