Electra is moving to Spain - the clearout commences!
« on: December 17, 2019, 09:47:33 PM »
As I have posted in another area, we are actually doing it and moving to Spain in the New Year. The house is on the market, we have an offer in on a really nice penthouse apartment in the little town of Benissa and the onerous task of thinning down 40 years worth of N Gauge and other stuff has begun.

I do not believe that it will be possible to use Ribblehead Viaduct in the new place - at 8ft long it is asking a lot and my good lady won;t let me run a line around the terrace :) Not sure what to ask, as it is totally unique. It will come with the Station Inn and a couple of bridges / culverts. It will need collection from Peterborough.

This, along with a lot of N Gauge stock, spares, bits will soon be appearing on the N-Porium. I also have a lot of power tools, computer bits, Star Trek memorabilia and old 8-bit computers to dispose of. If any of this may be of interest, please drop me a mail.

It is sad to have to clear out the collection but I will not have room for a layout, at least initially, and the benefits of the Mediterranian lifestyle will be more than worth it.

Mods - please move this if in the wrong topic.

If you don't find a buyer for this, I wonder if the Settle and Carlisle Railway Trust might be interested in it for their visitor centre at Ribblehead?

I will very much be continuing Electra. There may be some changes to prices and postage costs but I will try to keep things as smooth as possible. Ole!
