    Not really any different to some of the other rubbish offered in various sections. Who is the fool, the one who offers it or the one who buys it at the price?
    I have had a few railway bits by using the 'make an offer' key and offer under price and make a deal at the proper value. The best was a O gauge badly & nearly built LNWR coal tank kit for £15 above the value of the Slaters wheels (and still in the to do box).

    I've seen a couple of current Slater's wagon kits very recently, may still be on there, advertised at a fiver over list + P&P , buyers are defiantly mugs if they buy them.

    To be fair, it is 42.8% off.

    Therefore, it’s a bargain!

    Not sure how you’d cook it...

    The wheels are interesting, but the transfers do it for me

    Hi Tony,

    Love the seller's description too!:



    This is a reasonably built locomotive from a DJH brass body kit and with a kit built or a modified ACE trains chassis with can motor. The loco has been assembled to look like a 1950's style less refined kit and not a finescale model.

    The loco driving wheels have had a flat disc added to them so the loco will run on coarse track. They will be very easy to remove if you wish to change it back to fine scale.

    Works well on bench test. Comes in the DJH box.

    Plenty of potential for restoration or just 'play on' as is.

    This loco makes my Dublo efforts look like P4. But £300 for it?
