lol,  I thinks theirs 2 on ebay at the moment, You had to be a bachmann club member to buy it direct......

Until bachmann took over,  railfright class 31's and 20's were highly sort after.

The original TPO's were very hard to come by and went for silly money too.

NSE 101's, 159's and mk2 coaches were also hard to find.

The mintrix MGR's were also rare to come by

LMAO

Actually, I used to think that NSE Class 50's were rare, but they pop up everyone few weeks on eBay lately.  I completely agree with Porkie.  The original TPO's are selling for over 20 each now.  I have three I think.

8yrs ago I brought, according to gaugemaster. The last Kato eurostar set in the uk 8)....

But these still fetch silly money now.  And the extra add on set goes for more than the eurostar set and its only 4 car set  >:(

 

As for a modern classic matt....

I would go for........

regional railways class 153 DMU by Dapol could be a good choice..

I would love one of these, but not a priority on my list at the moment.   :)

I would say, but I'd like there to be the possibility of there being any such Items with traders!

Certainly the Blue Steel 60 and DRS 33 are not as rare as people make them out to be for starters

If you want something that will be a classic in a few decades, I'd say the weathered Dapol silver bullets

You must remember however, that the dapol freightliner and gbrf sets were both had a slight bow in the wagon, and were avoided by many.

Their rare nature is owed more to the very limited production run (250 of each number)

There are lots of ****RARE**** or >>>L@@K<<< collectable items on ebay on a daily basis, unfortunately they are usually sold by predators who know that there are a lot of gullible muppets out there who cant (or are too lazy to) do a bit of basic research on the computer they are currently vegetating in front of!  :evil:

I would say one of the rarest things about at the moment is the Dapol Gresley teak buffet cars. Been after one for a while now but not paying 48.00 or so for what they go for on a well known auction site, will wait for the new batch to be released later this year.

Unpowered, purely decorative Del Prado models of the Brighton Belle Pullman driving car go for 25 and more, likewise the French Picasso railcars. They are probably no "rarer" than the other models (they probably made exactly the same number of all of them), just more desirable.
Two rails good. Three better.
