An unexpected change of plans

Some sad news. Due to unforeseen circumstances I will be unable to continue with this model railway project, so I’m going to be selling off the stock and track that I have accumulated so far.

Basically, I have an opportunity to move abroad and start a new semi-retired life with my partner, something I have always wanted to do but always assumed would be many years down the line. That may sound ideal – more time for modelling, right? Well, no. We’ll be moving to Southeast Asia and our destination is just too hot and humid for a model railway to run reliably. It’s just not worth risking hundreds of Euros worth of stock going rusty and becoming worthless.

It’s sad from a modelling perspective, but at the end of the day I’m not going to deny myself this chance to realise a life-changing dream just for the sake of a model railway.

Soooo… I have to find new homes for an assortment of Swiss N Gauge locomotives, coaches, wagons and Fleischmann track.

I hate Ebay with a passion, and so I’ve decided to do it via the various Facebook groups I’m a member of. Over the coming weeks and months, I will be placing ads offering my stock for sale, in the following Facebook groups:

I’ll probably start by posting in ALL the above groups, and then look for which ones generate the most interest and focus on just those.

I’ll also look at assembling a master for-sale list to post on a separate page on this site.

Meanwhile, if you’ve seen something on this blog that you’d like to buy and don’t want to wait for it to be advertised in a group, you’re welcome to get in touch via Facebook Messaging – here’s my Facebook Messenger link. I’ll be using PayPal as the payment method.
