https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253836942229

And its dealer as well so should know better that this broken  bodgup is not worth a fraction of what he is asking.

And is that bodgup realy the sort of thing CRSignals produce?

To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

As a very satisfied customer of CR Signals I think it is wrong of you to criticise them.  I would suggest that this model started off life as a pannier tank and hard-wired GWR autocar, which is an excellent conversion, and it was subsequently butchered by its owner.

He didnít criticise, he asked if thatís the sort of thing CR Signals put out. The answer is obviously, no.

I suppose it only counts as "Obtaining money under false pretences" if someone buys them at those prices.
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

Doesn't even include the box shown in the pictures. Still, he can ask for it..

As njee20 says, there is no criticism of the excellent CR signals.

The ebay post is absurd!

OUCH!

Is that model in original posters link a late Halloween gag!
Model shop in question is genuine as I have bought some 00 locos from them at reasonable price with no issues. I even recall I bought a OO loco with an issue (on new release) and a replacement was sent with no problems. (I am not connected to them by the way, just previous satisfied customer)

I can only think a listing error has been made or a new apprentice has been left in charge of sales/listings.

Either way, this is a mistake. Kinda reminds me of what a dodgy 1980's car mechanic would do to a loco...it's called a cut and shove! :smackedface:
