Welcome Brian

From just one of the many other Brians into railway modelling

There may well be a reason for this... Brian is an anagram of Brain and Brain rhymes with Train!

Anyway... welcome to the forum

Brian

Brian hello from Bryan.

Yes ebay has been good for me also.Especially being here in the Colonies with limited access to UK and other makers of model railway items.
We have a train show Sunday in Victoria.Hoping I will find a few UK items.
I have found many treasures for example a rake of 6 Hamblings SR 00 gauge coaches from ebay USA listing all for $56US plus post.I always wonder how these items reach USA.
As a kid while on trips to the Smoke as it was then,I used to visit Hamblings shop at 10 Cecil Court and drool over their products never being able to affort it.
Each coach was 32/6.
Also made it to 112 High Holborn for more Basset-Lowke drooling over totaly out of range prices.

Regards,
Bryan.
