Hi Dave,

Very hit and miss - and I'm not just talking about N Gauge!

The last couple of times I have been it has been like this - the odd bit of stuff that I was interested in but at too high a price.

However, if you are into the diecast vehicles - then it's worth a visit.

Thanks
Thanks

Yes can be hit or miss.
I do go occasionally and have picked up some good bits.
Yes can be over priced but always worth a haggle.....never pay what there asking.....always ask what's there best price.
As stated previously more die cast and OO gauge, but there is some n gauge.
Still a quid to get in, most punters fly round the stalls (approx 40 ish) in half an hour, don't see anything that takes their fancy, they leave.
Starts at 1pm.

Hi Dave, did you go.

I popped over with one of my OO gauge mates.

Picked up 4 GF bogie tanks mint condition for a fiver each.

Was quite a few n gauge items there today.

I Did go and seen some bogie tanks which were pick of the bunch sadly not for my layout tho lots of USA locos. Most of UK locos were full price or close to to it almost tempted by an 08 and got a couple of wagons for a good price overall it was good and will be going back
