You'd have thought the seller would have sold it all as individual lots.

You seem loose value in job lots..

A nice collection although a bit confusing where it sais all is DDC fitted "professionally" and yet there are items detailed as DCC ready ?

Not modern enough for me but I bet someone is rubbing their hands :wink:

Can't see anyone other than a trader buying this as they're all completely unrelated stock. He'd definitely get much more by selling as separate lots.

Am i reading it wrong? - The listing says 17 DCC train sets, yet there are only 8 train sets, plus 9 locos, 8 carriages and 23 wagons. Seeing that the seller makes no promises as to their running performance (been in storage for a year etc), i think they're already at the high end of what a sane person might pay

There are one or two strange typos in the listing as well. My guess is that it won't make its reserve. Controversial eh!

For all of the reasons stated above I wouldn't touch that lot with a shunter's pole.

You've all missed that five matched sets are described as DCC Ready - where are the chips?

This is a re-listing - why did the first buyer pull out? Did he find he was being conned when he turned up to collect?

If is sells I would say £2100 or more.

I questioned the seller:
Why if they are all supposed to be DCC fitted are the 5 matched sets listed as DCC Ready, he says because he made a mistake they are not fitted with chips!
How many more mistakes has he made?
