SOLD: train set £40.00

A large wooden train collection with trains and other separates to make endless play possibilities. This collection has been built over the last couple of years but my son has now outgrown it after hundreds of hours play. He has agreed to sell it here and use the proceeds to buy himself something new - so if you have any swaps suitable for a 7-year old please don't hesitate to make suggestions. He is into Pokemon (although no DS / Wii games needed) and collecting Gogos Crazy Bones at the minute.

There is approx 180 pieces in total. The first picture shows everything, although note that the track pieces are in small piles so it looks smaller than it is. I will add separate photos of different types of items in the first couple of posts.

First refusal on this goes to fairy who prompted me on another thread to ask my son whether he still wanted this.

The green train with the silver top is battery operated (but needs batteries). It has two buttons on the silver roof that turn it on/off and (I think) change direction (forward/reverse)

Too old for me, but it reminds me of going into the Early Learning Centre and getting dragged out by the parents for playing with them for too long :-D

thanks marke1, a bit less than he was hoping for so I'm sticking with asking for now at least. Also waiting for fairee to decide whether she's interested or not as I promised her first refusal after getting pics up. Presume she'll be on today. :thumbsup:

Btw - just been told (& remembered!) that the green train is battery powered. Takes two of those tiny L154 batteries. The batteries in it had run down, but I can confirm it works since when I just took them out using a pen-knife the train turned on very weakly with the extra jolt of electricity coming from me through the knife!!

Hi there,

Can you weigh it so I can workj out a price for postage?

thanks

Hi there,

Hi there - I don't have scales but have just lifted it all in a box and I'd estimate about 6kg. RM Standard parcels rate is:

4kg £6.85
6kg £9.30
8kg £11.40

But there is also courier offers sometimes for approx £6.

But I'd be willing to accept £8 and use Parcelforce 48 through the post office as long as it makes it into the £11 bracket (which I think it does). If it didn't, I'd send standard parcels instead.

Hope that helps. :thumbsup:

I thought you were waiting for Fairy to get back to you ?

She's obviously not interested as she hasn't replied to my pm that I sent at the same time as listing - and she's been on since then. So it's open to anybody. :)

Hey Liddle, whereabouts up here are you? How far from OL12?

Hey Liddle, whereabouts up here are you? How far from OL12?


Bit far actually - 67 miles according to RAC :?

But you know what, if I deliver the TV to VanDutch as discussed on another thread, that means I'd be in the general area. It might even sway my decision to agree to his offer. I've only been hesitating because of the bother of the trip. But if I could kill two birds it might be worth it....
#17
How about £30 and I'll meet you at J8 on M65 on your way to/from VanDutch's? (subject to agreeing a mutually convenient time, of course...)
#18
didnt i offer £30 ?
#19

didnt i offer £30 ?


Sorry marke1, so you did.
Ok, £35 and will still meet on M65 somewhere...
#20
only offering £30 can you meet on m56
#21
£35 delivered?
#22
Guys, back on these offers in a bit. Need to decide what's happening with the TV first.


Ok, have contacted VanDutch to say that I can't do the long drive to deliver the TV - just too busy these days - so looks like this is only open for delivery.

So what are the best offers for this delivered before I decide whether to list elsewhere? £35 delivered seems to the best offer so far, but it's too low. I'm sure I could sell this on ebay for quite a bit more.
#23
Liddle - £40 delivered (or £35 and I can meet you Preston/Leyland somewhere - I work in Leyland)

£35 delivered?


I'm going to have to back out of this offer, as I need delivery for Tuesday as this is a birthday present.

£45 delivered standard parcels?

Sorry, I should have made it clear earlier that I wouldn't accept this anyway. The post will cost at least £9.30 (standard parcels) so that wouldn't have worked. I could sell half the pieces on ebay for the same profit.

But £46 and I'll get it sent today Parcelforce 48 (costs me £11+ I think) :thumbsup:
#26
sorry, my "present" budget is £40.

Good luck with the sale

Euston - followed by Luton - bet you can guess we are spending the hols abroad :-D - basically coming into Euston late afternoon and then making our way to a hotel near Luton Airport.
#31
Liddle, Let me know if you're anyway near Rochdale/Leyland in the next few weeks. I can go to £40 total but willing to meet to save on postage.

Thanks - this is now a possibility actually if I go ahead with the purchase in another thread and collect in Wigan. Where is the closest point between Preston and Wigan that we could meet if I do, and what days/times would suit you :thumbsup:
#33
depends where you'd be going to Wigan from? If ur coming down the M6 then I could meet you just off J28 or J29. I'm usually in Leyland between 8am and 5pm Mon-Fri, and can probably nip out for half-an-hour anytime during then. Otherwise you let me know where/when you were thinking? I live OL12 and work PR26 and use the M65 to get between the two.

Yes, i'd be coming down the M6 so just off one of those junctions would be perfect :thumbsup:

Ok, talking with the other member later today about the possible purchase. I'll let you know if I'm going ahead with it. If so, we have a deal!

(Edit: and btw, if you tell me the age of the person who'll be using this, I will hunt around and throw in a few extras from things my 7 year old no longer uses - no promises I'll find anything interesting, but I'll find something no doubt! :thumbsup:)
#35
ok, J29 is probably easiest. If you come off the M6 and turn right there is a big B&Q about 1/2 mile on the left (and a Burger King, with Sainsburys opposite.) I could meet you on the carpark any lunchtime this week?

Also, my nephew is 3, so if you do throw anything into the pot I'm sure it'll get used in time. :)
#36
Can I just say that this track is quality.

You should buy the Battery Operated Train with it (normally it's the famous train, cant remember name), and it will drag all the carriages etc with it.

Will have many many hours of fun with it.

EDIT: Meh, I am blind, lol, anyway its a great track. :)

Excellent! That sounds perfect. And as I said by PM, my son and his very generous and beautiful older sister (not that I'm biased) are, as we speak, finding additions for the package ;-)

Thanks for the details by PM. Forgot my mobile in the reply. Will send that now. :thumbsup:
