Hi All,

Thanks for the kind remarks on my Swiss Shunter layout... however.. having spent the weekend and just come back from my pals, and have experienced the joy of digital sound in Lenz O scale and British G1... ESU Loksound wowee... I am hooked.... big time. I cannot live without sound !!

I have slept on my decision and all my HO is going.. lock stock and barrel to assist financing my upscale to O gauge... ( can't afford G1 scale)

A few images, you have already seen on my other topic

Visit My layout

Before I put them on fleabay for best offers,, I thought I'd ask you guys.. If interested PM me with your email addy and I shall send you my list.. some of my stock is out of production.. so I could have just what you want.. or you can email me direct on My email

I am happy to accept cheque or Pay Pal payments . this is a 100% genuine sale.. my ebay id is
swb104 where you will find I have 100% positive feedback.

I am currently compiling my list and photographs... so give me a while to respond.If interested do give me a shout..

Buyers can collect, I live in West Midlands UK.. or I can post to UK or Europe.. any further is okay providing you agree to pay Royal Mail exhorbitant postal rates and pay me in Sterling

Needless to say, I shall be taking a loss on most of the stuff, but am looking to at least cover my start up in the BIG O scale scene.

I shall be back, once this lot is sold, with my new O gauge layout from conception to birth

Watch this space...

Not very much Interest

My O gauge track has now arrived, it is HUGE compared to HO

However, I now need to recoup some of my outlay.. I am looking for best offers over £300 for the collection above.
Sensible offers considered..

If no takers, or the price ain't right... then it ends up on fleabay. I cannot focus on the new project till this is all shifted, the clock is ticking....

Hi John,
yes, once I have packaged & sent the rolling stock off, I shall prepare a list of the buildings I have available. Be another week or so before I get to those, though.
If there is anything specific you have seen, and are interested in please email /pm me..

hi guys n gals

the first trickle of my HO layout remnants is now on fleabay

Visit My ebay auctions

Only couplings, point motors and points.
The couplings are Roco 43050 universals, IMHO, the best Euro couplings there are. with a built in pre-uncoupling feature, great for shunting /switching

In around a weeks time , I shall list here ( moderators permitting) my buildings, road vehicles and figures from my HO Swiss layout that will be for sale, before putting them on fleabay.

Sales to go towards paying for my new arrival
