I remember that well .... many years back.

Good start I'd say.

I'll.doubt I'll get anywhere close to the same levels of stock with today's prices.

Its interesting.. It really focuses the mind on what things to get. Before I had the thinking and spending ability that if I liked it, I could probably get it. I still could to a certain extent but...

I don't think half of what I had then will ever get replaced but some bits maybe. Of course some things can't be replaced because I made them and of all the things, there the ones that matter most.

That's not to say i don't have a wish list as long as your arm!

Um, new crowd here, so don't know the backstory, but should I read between the lines that I should get insurance for my 1,000+ rolling stock? :!:

You know your website means you can find your home address in less time than it took me to write this?

Contents will cover to a certain amount. If your collection is worth more it will need proper cover. Also.. In the event of theft... Having photos of every bit of stock was a good substitute for not having receipts!

Runs OK around tightest curve and through points fine. Seems to be about right
