    How do you assess whether the asking price is worthwhile?

    The advert I saw in one of the railway mags said £65K plus assets. By my reckoning that means the assets are worth £235K. I have no idea if this is reasonable or not. I hope it sells as it is a great little railway.

    It should be noted, the 2 Ruston's on the railway are both privately owned and not included with the sale. The 2 locos mentioned in the sale are Alan Keef Wk No.23 and Motor Rail Wk No.7199.
