Stunning model railway

What's Hot
Bit of a long shot, but I am moving house and downsizing due to family reasons which I won’t bore you with. The up shot is I need to let my model railway go. It is a fully digital DCC “OO” layout. It’s pretty big - 11’ 8” x 4’ 6”, complete with full digital signal box (total luxury with all points (23 of)and signals operated by levers)a lot of rolling stock ( including 8 engines all with digital sound), twin controllers, a full set of tasks and challenges, 2 stations all fully detailed to a high standard. Happy to send photos and video if anyone is interested. The custom built table can be split into 3 and I would be happy to help with re homing ( I live in Littleborough)Very difficult to value but it cost me close to £6000, and took over a year to build. Twin loop track, with shunting area and private coal mine. Any way desperate times so make me an offer I’m open to offers. I know you will need far more information so please message me with your email, I’m happy for interested parties to visit and spend some time going over everything. I believe I have to include a price to conform to forum rules so £3500 which to me is a very reasonable price all things considered

regards Mark.

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.

    Very concerned about the H&S methodology by the sidings workers.

    I'll do the toolbox talk for....errr.....£3000?

    That is truly amazing. Always wanted a train set since I was a kid. So wish I had 3.5k to burn

    Wow, what an amazing thing to have created and I'm so sorry that you have to sell it.

    Are there any local model railway clubs that could help you find a buyer? I guess you've likely tried that route given your obvious ability...

    I hope it finds a good home and you get a decent chunk of change for it....sadly I don't have the space otherwise I might be tempted!

    That is an unbelievably cool thing to have and I bet you are absolutely gutted to see this potentially go.

    I sincerely hope you can find some way of keeping it

    My Dad was a train driver in the steam era. 

    He used to take me to model railway exhibitions when I was small. He made “me” one (yeah, right Dad). I thought they were great but didn’t ignite a spark for me. But guitar did. 

    I’d love my Dad to have this but he’s way too old and not able now. 

    Just feel sad you have to sell it. It’s clearly been a loving creation. Best  wishes.

    Best for sale thread ever. Was waiting for Thomas to appear with the fat controller on board.  Bloody brilliant

    That's absolutely fantastic. So much detail and realism in the scenery and the relicing on the engines and rolling stock would put Tom Murphy to shame.

    You could get in touch with Rod Stewart..!  Or Roger Daltrey... (Both known model railway enthusiasts )
