Assuming it comes fitted with a 21-pin TXS decoder (£69.99 RRP) - that makes the loco £60.00. Not a bad price - but they have now sold-out.
According to the details on the page, it is only DCC ready, not DCC fitted.

It has been confirmed that the loco comes fitted with a TXS 21pin decoder and sound.

On the one hand that does make it better, and probably quite a good buy. But on the other, for me it wouldn't have been a loco to run, so makes no difference to whether I'd buy one. A DCC ready version for £70-80 I'd probably have got it.
