Chris has been in touch. He’s the chap that makes layouts to order. He’s in the UK:
take a look at the layout i have just finish for a buyer in Leed’s.
He had a 5×5 N gauge to start with then had to do a second part of a 3×5, and now he is think about going 4×5 more.
It’s a cracking layout. But I’m sure you’re all thinking what I was: How much did he charge? Here’s what Chris came back with:
“Hi its an 8×5 n gauge with working car lights,street lights,house lights, also comes with working points gaugemaster Q controller its a 4 track layout & it cost with my time £2100 that is with table legs. Many Thanks, Chris”.
That’s about $3,234 US dollars in case you’re wondering… eye watering stuff.
Don’t forget to have a look-see at the main ‘ebay cheat’ sheet here.
Thanks to everyone who has mailed about the the old railroad station too.
