impressive use of mawla for the track. I think No. 01 Boffin is safe :)

He's in Belfast Co. Antrim but does not post to Ireland!!!

Bit of a geography lesson required there. Sure maybe he needs the bus fare home and has to pay in Sterling;)

He doesn't understand the value of things, the definition of the word "rare", what £150 translates to in terms of people's wages, let alone his inaccurate grasp of geography!

MM 201 as class leader is always in demand

Restaurant and Standard coaches are still available although getting hard to get now.

And thanks to you Dave for supplying me with no 201 for a fair price last year.

A fair number MM orange roofed mk2 coaches have hit eBay in the last few days, and some black roofed ones. Not my cup of tea as wrong era, but attractive coaches in IR/IE livery with tippex despite the wrong shade of day-glo orange.

The eBay stuff is priced way over the top. You can get 071s for 130-135 euros new from the trade and 141 for 110 -eBay lunacy

There's a set of the same coaches in Marks for €109. Who's more deluded the seller or the buyer.

Interestingly the ones on eBay have white/cream coloured roofs, whereas the marks models ones are dark grey roofs??? Same model numbers so did bachmann produce two variants?

Hmmm :) price aside, I've yet to see a brass built one that is not warped or twisted in some way.

Where have you seen the brass kit built wagons that they are warped or twisted How many different individuals models have you seen. Do you blame the kits or the builders. Why not offer up a post on how best the modeller or manufacturer might improve the kit. I'm sure they would love to know.

 

It could be the lighting conditions or else he did unclip the roof and lightened the colour. If he did re paint the roof it really should be mentioned in the description. Saying they are hard to source is a bit cheeky when the are available in Marks for €109.

It's the brightness of the light shining on the roof. It looks the correct factory colour to me.

The BRASS 42' flat is so well designed that you'd have to go out of your way to make it warped or twisted. The mind boggles at that statement. R
