The 1978 prices are also interesting:




Turntable £49 = £450 labour hours's equivalent today. A modern powered equivalent is c.£110

Pacific £29 = £267 labour hours's equivalent today. Today's bachhy/hornby equivalent is c.£120


Summary? Thanks to globalisation, cheap chinese labour and higher competition, prices are 25% of what they were 35 years ago...
