...Am I missing something here ?
... "Black Friday" & the sage-brush is rollin' across the plain !
All you are missing out on is being stampeded with the herd....
Better to lurk unmoving like a Crocodile until some worthwhile prey ventures too near the river bank.
Further to my "lame duck" Black-Friday post (on Page.6), it seems then that I dodged both a Pride of Lions AND "A Pack of Hyenas"
I say this, for the ONLY veritable "Bargain" (or, so I thought), turned-out to be 'reduced across the range' Class.66's
from Scouse land
Me, with my (extreme) lack of knowledge of model-traction offerings, dodged a bullet (or 4), by not surrendering my wallet to these.... Appropriate for Liverpool & Merseyside then, I've only just found-out that these '66's, "wobble" like Bruce Groblaar's LEGS https://youtu.be/YDn9xSZjThk?t=8
I only currently possess ONE class.66 engine & that is a (beautiful), "E.W.S" from Bachmann - (that runs fine, NO WOBBLES
Am assuming then that these (Ahem), "Bruce Wobbleaar"
engines made for Merseyside are ALL blighted (?) & made at a different factory ?
They WERE being punted-out at £119.00 instead of the slightly higher £150.00 normal price - A 'Black Friday' BARGAIN - (or, so I thought)
It was just MY lack of knowledge on them that made me (thank Gawd, as it turned-out), "hang fire" on purchasing one.
Being as the price 'reduction' across the entire (or seemingly entire), new fleet was evident, is it reflective because of any "known problems" ?
Are they ALL "Bruce Wobbleaars"
, or, is it just restricted to an unlucky few ?
(put it this way - what VERY limited I've heard, has put me off ever buying one & being potentially saddled with a 'dud')
