  1. Its not even the Hornby 67, its the original Lima one Perhaps there motto could be "Rocket railways, our prices are so sky high theyre in orbit!" NL
  2. Lets dissect this description: "A excellent Heljan inspired [a]Hornby triang class 86/0 bR blue pantograph locomotive numbered e3146 relined by expert hands [b ]and in excellent condition with retractable pantograph[c] comes complete with correct r753 interior casing [d] with only a tiny crack blemish [e] these are hugely collectable items that only go up in value [f]a great Investment or layout addition [g]" [a] How can it be "inspired if it pre-dates Heljan by probably about 3 decades (correct me if im wrong)?! [b ]Only lines I see are the brush strokes that were used by the pound shop paint brush used, and I see no Evidence of this "lining" he / she is on about ? [c] Ill be surprised if it works [d] Well at least he knows what the R number for the interiror is, although isnt that the model number???? [e] "by "blemish" I mean where I knocked it the other day after watching Gogglebox, sipping several pints of Whisky" [f] Youve seriously delaued it now with that bodge job!!! [g] NL

  10. Some photos of the Island line a year on in 2021, 483s are now retired and 007 is pictured at the train story on the Isle of Wight steam railway and 006 is at the time of this post sat in Ryde st johns Platform 3, the line isnt open, but the 484s are caught on a couple of test runs and 484002+003 are seen at Lake and entering Shanklin: NL
  11. Yes I found the description vague, I mean I sure wouldnt pay that as I have that model myself and have fixed all the silly livery errors on it, although mine no longer has a motor as I shifted it on a few years ago now NL
