Must be the year for Ransomes & Rapier products, as Bachmann are bringing out an OO version of one of their steam cranes in 2018 - at a fairly eye-watering price from what I have seen (£240 ish RRP).

This will beat the NGF Cowans Sheldon crane to the market and, depending on a price comparison, might seriously dent the need for the NGF project!

Looks rather good.

By any chance, did Osborn's suggest a price for the kit?
