Not G scale, but posted here because it is a rare UK item that only seems to have retailed for a short time in France. This rare Triang TT scale loco realised £1,700 on eBay yesterday, the A1A-A1A Class 31 in the very rare blue livery ... this model surfaced around 1966/67, after the plug had already been pulled on the whole range around 1964/65. France seems to be the place to find this variant and most (if not all) were boxed with the blue identity label written in French .... Triang did a French TT range and this model seemed to have been sold there along with that range. Also rare are the BR blue/grey coaches but these have red identity labels in English. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=110411624584
I wonder if the seller waived his £7 postage? Whether she did or not, what is certain, is that eBay will be taking around £256 in fees out of it.
