View Full Version : What to buy?

08-07-2011, 10:55 PM
Hi, I am looking to buy a few locos and coaches/wagons.

Basically, it can be anything, I am not modelling any particular era or area.
It has to have tension lock couplings to match what I have already.
I need it to be cheap but reliable as I don't have a lot of money and I still have to construct and wire the layout.

What do you recommend and where should I get it?

If you are after new than try someone like Hattons as they do some good deals.

If secondhand than a swoopmeet or toyfair is best. Good ones are advertised in mag's like Railway modeller.

You can find some good deals on ebay but you need to know the value of item you are bidding on is, and the maximum you are willing to pay of that item before postage is added on. You can end up with some items that are not as good as the photo or discription says it is, you can also get something that is better.
