Hi Alan,

I did notice that, but I wasn't sure what happened ! :oops:  As you have seen, it's all good now. :thumbs

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary

They look very good and I've no doubt they are lovely models, but why do the manufacturers make the prices so high?

Rhetorical question really, but I'm sure if they reduced the price of these new models they'd sell far more.

Yes, you're right there Ed. Unfortunately, as you probably know, labour costs in China went up approximately 50% over the financial year (July-June) of 2013-2014 and will do again in the 2015-2016 financial year. You're lucky you are not living in Australia and purchasing from the UK, because at the moment our dollar converts to less than .50p ! :shock: 

One thing we can't complain about is the quality of the current models, which are superb compared to 15-20 years ago. :thumbs

Cheers, Gary.

50p, ouch! (even without the VAT).

Ignore me Gary, I'm just moaning.

Just think it's a shame and puts potential younger modellers off, although I know there is the Railroad range.
