this is utterly bonkers in my opinion.

they are trying to increase revenues and by increasing prices! then they talk about market erosion!!

this may make the short term balance sheet look good but it must be very bad news for the company.

I am sure there is a metaphor for this!

I haven't bought a new (top of the range as opposed to railroad) loco in a year. £100 is simply too much to spend on a hobby.

There are so many wasted opportunities in that company. I cant help thinking that they only have themselves to blame. The international range is vast and was full of perfect train set models that would have sold like hot cake. Then they stuck a £180 price tag on them! its just crazy. The TGV trailer cars have about 6 pieces in total. So why in the name of all that's holy do they try and sell them for more than a Hornby teak? They should be about a tenner. I don't mind high prices but I object very strongly to being treated like a mug.

I suspect it might be even worse than these figures suggest. I think there was more than a little profiteering going on with last years price increases. and obviously that didn't work.
