For Sale

The following items are currently for sale. Except where marked, prices are exclusive of shipping/postage.

Chivers Gilpin Caboose - 1/48 scale, 16.5mm On30 gauge

Three off kits for On30 Gilpin 2-foot gauge cabooses (cabeese?). Injection moulded plastic including Australian non-magnetic wheelsets for the trucks. One kit is started and has been assembled to the point where underframe and trucks are together. There are also two sets of Grandt Colorado and Southern pot bellied stoves for the interior, and matching pawls, ratchets and brake wheels for the ends of these cars. I will throw these in free with the first two kits bought. Chivers' website currently lists these kits at £22 each plus postage, and the Grandt line parts are probably another 4 squids-worth on their own, so please do do the math before thinking that I am out to rip people off.

Price - £20 each (inc. 2nd class UK postage)
