GF mk1 maroon coach cost
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:41:03 pm »
Sorry if this is in the wrong place I could not find somewhere to put this so in here it goes.

What I would like to know is if people think 10.80 is a decent amount for a GF mk1 maroon coach, 2nd hand the entire thing is 54 (including posting) with 5 coaches.

Again my apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I don't know about maroon coaches specifically, but every coach I look at on eBay seems to be a fair bit dearer than that! I am talking about 'Buy It Now', but a lot of the auctions start quite cheap but seem go for something like what you are paying - or more,

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Depends which version it is...

Original Poole production: slightly over priced - around 8-9 is fair value
Poole Type / Chinese production (better finished version of above): about par - around 10-12 is fair value
Current Blue Riband Type: - Bargain!! you will struggle to get right side of 15 each!

I do not know which ones they are, can you tell by the box?

I have atatched the photo from the listing if it helps.

Buffet is Poole - Silver wheels/large flanges and the slightly translucent finish are the give-aways.
Rest are Chinese produced Poole types. The clear box suggests that one is probably ex-trainset (if it's the original box) so likely to be a different running number to standard production and a bit rarer. The box with the yellow stripe may not be the original for that coach...

Overall I'd say 55 is a fair price for the lot.

Thanks for that.

I'll give it a little think.
I currently have no rolling stock in N but I got a wagon kit for 3.50 earlier and I'm off to an exhibition Saturday in Manchester so might get some bargains.

If not what I don't spend will go on these if still available.
