Heya, sorry ive been away! I have done a bit more work to the layout, not by much but it has seen some more changes :)
Image
Image
Image
The new shed area, this has replaced the circus which i thought was very out of place!
Image
Image
Image
Merry Hill station has now got a car park, the station in place and the p way depot at the far end. A trio of LT Panniers are seen arriving in the first photo and the KWVR 4F in the second. The pway yard is the third photo. The car park white lines will be tidied up at some point.
Image
New signalbox for Cabot Cove along with a recent arrival, Midland Compound 1000 double heading with 5526.

Now just some more photos

yes sadly prices have increased, but when they were more available used to pick them up for "£25 - 30 all 3rds were more expensive, than all 1st for example as they weren't as popular, as all 3rd ect...

anything over £10 per coach is too much in my book, careful scouring of ebay or the second hand shelf at the model shop and model railway exhibitions see me through, plus paint if they're in the wrong livery :D

I wouldn't say that personally, they are only expensive if you cannot afford them ;)
Generally £20 - 30 for a high detailed coach with many separately fitted items... I would say is fine for me.
There are older versions which were done by Tri-ang / Hornby, which I still have a few of, which tend to be sent out to carboot sales.

I'm only 15 though, over £10 and I could buy a small loco with that instead :lol: or a decoder or any amount of other things. besides I find it much more fun "doing up" old coaches to make them look presentable, rather than just taking them out of the box.
