I am sure you guys have heard about the new new hornby manusal coaches, and in my eyes they nicely detailed and dont huert the wallet to much with some suppliers qouteing them at £20 or less this to me seams a bargin when. Hornby last lot of new coaches the (greasley)RRp at £32.

Why do you think these new mansaul are that bit cheap than the greasleys ?

my theory is that they have realised that people up north are not as rich as those in kent where hornby is based


Anyway best regard

the teak coaches were more expensive because of the extra processes needed for the paint work. i thought the other livery's were overpriced.

"my theory is that they have realised that people up north are not as rich as those in kent where hornby is based "
Shouldnt that be the other way round??

Perhaps Hornby has realised that £30-£35 for a coach is too much? Perhaps there's less added detail to the Maunsells? I think people paid the price for the Pulllmans as they are very good, and the lighting added some "value". The Gresleys are not only expensive but have a less than accurate tumblehome. The Staniers are also expensive and most are banana shaped! I should add that I've got about 10 of each of the aforementioned so the faults didn't put me off! No interest in the Maunsells, however.
