Is this shop & its Products any good?

Postby riber3 » Tue Jul 02, 2019 9:42 pm

Hi all,

Has anyone used this Ebay shop or bought any of its products? I have written to them a few times regarding items that I want to buy but I have never yet received a reply!!

I am interested in the plastic track and this loco and some rolling stock

This is the loco and the shop info
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/G-SCALE-RC-L ... 1438.l2649

Not sure if its of Chinese origin or what its dimensions are although it states G scale length, height and width would be nice too

So if anyone has used them and can tell me if they are ok to use that would be great

I don't have one of these but the chap seems to have good feedback and good things said about the loco bought by customers. If I was going to have a garden railway I would buy one as a good starter loco for German railway It seems simple enough and seems easy similar to the radio control used on model planes. They were easy enough to service and replace parts.
It worked last time I used it..............John

Track gauge is 45 mm which is based on one metre gauge used in Germany I believe at a guess I think the loco would be about 4" high at a guess. Expect somebody who knows more than I will be along later.

Thanks John and Foot plate for your reply and for the info 4 inches high? I thought it would be taller!!

I only said about I have not seen one. Only doing it from memory of the G gauge I have seen in the past.
