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:
- N’porium – N Gauge Classifieds
- N Gauge Model Railway Buy Sell And Swap
- Modellbahn Spur N An & Verkauf
- Spur N Modelleisenbahn An- und Verkauf
- Modellbahn Spur N – Markt
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.
