QUOTE (34C @ 18 Jul 2007, 16:40) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Why not? It's nothing new, for example back in the mid 1970's there was an oriental brass production of GW Kings in OO, asking price around £120 if memory serves, which was roughly ten times the price of a contemporary similar sized RTR product from Triang Hornby. Very nice they were too, all significant visible detail present and correct, based on the one example I subsequently saw running on an exhibition layout.

Additionally there was an HO brass King for a similar price, I think, back in the mid 70's. If memory serves me correctly it was limited to 250 examples. These are now very sought after and not just by us few British HO modellers.
