Ebay….a strange creature

Last week I won a Hornby A3 ‘St Gatien’ on Ebay. BR Green early crest and single chimeny for a future project unrelated to Leaman Road. I was the only person to bid and won it for it’s starting price of £70. 

Yesterday I unsuccessfully bid and didn’t win another model of St Gatien. This time it sold for £86!!!! How strange that the same locomotive can sell for so much more in a matter of days. 

It wasn’t all bad news mind as I won another A3 last night, LADAS in BR Green. This time for bargain of all bargains at £58.99……yes a Hornby super detailed A3 for £58.99

Ebay is indeed a strange beast….but I don’t think it’s a bad thing!
