This could have come from Hornby's development team as the number ( 25 001 ) which looks original was never as far as I know issued by the factory 

 

This is worthy of BBC's panel show "Would I Lie to You?"

 

Cheers,

The small slot cars are allegedly 1/64 scale I believe, but they seem to have an elastic tape measure.... Even the old Tri-ang Minic cars were rather generously dimensioned.

 

How does one value a layout? They tend to be rather (considerably?) less than the sum of their parts.

For me the main issue with that is the exorbitant price tag.  Plenty available for far less in dusty trays at shows up an down the country that have probably done more mileage in the retailers van desperately seeking a buyer than the real thing.

The seller does say:-

 

"as I have no longer got an 00 gauge layout."

 

I did read that.  It just seemed odd to photograph a OO Gauge Train on an N gauge layout.

Not eBay but Hattons.  Who is going to pay £65 for a second hand Terrier that only goes one way?

Sounds like it has been fitted with a Hattons chip, as they have a tendency to only work in one direction, from my experience.

If youve ever wanted to own a collection of 43 LMS Maroon Patriot 5541 R311 Duke of Sutherlands, now here is your chance...

The good news is ebay is currently listing another 9 so you could have the option of owning a round number of 51 and have potential to do the whole fleet.

I was look last night for a Duke of Sutherland on eBay, but in BR livery. :(
