    Anyone who hasn't sent their list off to the big man in the red suit, could add this:

    Posted for info only - I have no connection to the loco or the seller.

    "Genuine barn find" (and maybe not the only thing that has emerged at that location recently.......??)

    If this is a genuine slimming down of Collection 'X', it would not surprise me if they get a lot of interest from mainland Europe, given the pedigree of some of the locos.

    Well if previously published lists are correct I believe that they do have a few "duplicates" in the collection (including another two of those Henschels, one modified to an 0-4-2t)
    I understand that the seller is identified as "Vale of Rheidol Railway - Surrey" but no mention of the sale on the main VoR website or Facebook page that I could see.

    There was an article on the Hulleras de Sabero locos in the Rheidol newsletter last year (they have 8!)

    Indeed. I have been talking about a 2' line as a feeder to the 7 1/4" for quite a while ;-)

    Very impressive, I didn't win the lottery so I can't put a bid in for her

    Now come on, how do you expect Santa to get that down your Chimney?

    Must admit I suggested to the wife that it might be a good Xmas present for me, she wasn’t impressed!!!

    Any guesstimates of how much a serious bid would need to be? The listing has 100K crossed out, and £1234 added. Neither of these can surely be correct?

    “Offers invited”. Anything above “no” is the asking price.

    I asked for guesstimates from people who know how much something like this might go for. No more pathetic attempts at witticisms please :)

    I would suggest that the figure will be a lot higher considering that she has been in dry storage and by the looks of the photo everything is there, beside a full overhaul and the replacing of such things like tubes, may be some boiler work oh and the removal of any asbestos and I think you will find that the safety springs will need replacing as well if you allow for anything than needs replacing to be replaced.

    I won't be surprised if she fetches something like £100,000. I say that considering the price of other 2ft gauge locos on the market which are in a very poor state.

    At least any buyer ought to be able to get a moderately up to date guideline price from the IMR. You won't of course benefit from the unit cost advantage of decontaminating 5 locos in one hit.

    It is an interesting development. There are a few types where there are more than one example in the collection, lets hope there are others waiting to be release and eventual restoration in due course - A Gwailor pacific or a Lawley for example!
