Just walked out of collectors corner and walk 4 foot to my car (lucky free parking spot right beside it) I had a good old chin wag cause it was quiet for 20 mins they were very helpful I had a good old rummage through their second hand, (best I've seen without visiting ron lines) immaculate second hand items even some recent DCC ready 47's for good prices, and plenty of second hand kettles, sadly I'm not expanding my stock right now and wasn't in a possisition to buy but did buy a Bachman decoder before I left I got it rounded down to the next pound (every penny helps) and mentioned that they had a little following, I did get the breathing down neck feeling a little but they were more helpful than anything, I shall be popping back there when iexpand my stock definitely!!!!

Out of interest how much did you pay for the decoder?

Is this shop under new ownership? Visited recently and it had about a 1/3 of the stock, under refit and the gentlemen running it seemed new to me?
