Default Hornby R1038 Orient Express "The Boxed Set"

My son wants to sell his Christmas present from 10 years ago. It is hardly used and in excellent condition.

I was about to list it on our well known auction site, then thought I should ask here. The price on the bay seems to be a wide range 120-250.

Tracked, insured UK delivery is about 12, because it weighs 9 Kg.

Any offers?

more info added ..
We have been checking the set. It is complete apart from the CD, which we cannot find. The loco runs nicely. The packaging is present and in very good condition (drawer liners, plastic covers and outer box).
But note, there is a small bit of damage to one corner of the tender and a tiny ladder has come off from there - see photo

The loco should be DCC ready. We never tried ourselves to fit it, but there is experience posted on the Hornby forum by moderator RAF96, saying the loco works very well with it.

Good point Brian! He would prefer to do it now though, having sorted all the photos.
