Noting the discussion on Pat Hammonds site about the subject of selling Black Prince on eBay of all the replies made this recent one has caught my eye:-

QUOTE Bachmann Club 9F 'Black Prince'

I'm sorry to keep on about this - but I was so gobsmacked when I searched e-bay for 9Fs and saw item 320044888230 that I had to report it - this is a chancer offering one of these for a "Buy-it-now" price of £799.99!

Will he find an idiot with too much money or not? No other comment

Should you report somebody for offering an item on eBay at a set price?

The whole Black Prince saga seems to have blown up beyond all proportion and I am slightly surprised that Bachmann have made any official comment on it at all but they have. Hornby would not have and never have in the past and some of their limited editions regularly fetch several times the original sale price on eBay.

Limited editions are limited editions and thats it. If you are lucky enough to get one as a customer then good luck and you should not complain if you don't.

Further, you should be free to do whatever you want to do with it without it being "policed" by anybody.

Any manufacturer getting personally involved in the supply chain is creating a rod for their own back.

Thats always been my view on all limited editions.
Happy modelling
