We have certainly considered selling "spares" as has been suggested.  We were thinking of a nominal set price of maybe 1.50 per item because there can be a tremendous amount of time involved in ferreting for the right components.  The problem then of course is the dreaded postage cost.  That has got to be at least another 1.50.

Certainly still be of possible of interest to me - the wagons I have have the majority of the components reusable, so it seems a shame to junk them for the lack of some specific parts.

Or alternatively, offering the bare kit sprues minus bogies/wheels/couplings would also be of interest, and would save volunteers having to find specific parts on the sprues?

Thanks,
Alan

The only problem with that is that the items will move from our bit-box to a member's "bit-box" without actually being made available to the member who really needs them.

Having said that, the Committee will consider all options
