Given all the interest that the model railway part work has generated with it's £3:99 coach, it begs the question, (out of interest)
"if" a range of these sorts of quality vehicles were available at say £4:99, would you buy one/or more?
I appreciate there has been some OTT interest in the novelty value that these have brought and thus on a more general sale, there might not be the same enthusiasm, especially as they would not be as widely available as the magazine version.
For example I've often wanted a garden railway, and liked the idea of a rake of 8 or 9 MkI's behind a Peak, these would seem ideal. Be interesting to hear others thoughts.
I appreciate also that there is a Hornby Railroad Range. And I can see that they have brought a new MkI range out, at £17:95, http://www.hornby.co...g-stock/?page=3
now unless hachette were making a loss on each of these issue 1's (unlikely?) take away the track piece and the magazine etc, it would appear that these coaches have been made for around £3 each?
Thus could a limited range be made and sold at under £5 each?
