I'm a boat man. But.... I was at a meet which was combined with train guys. large stuff as it was out of doors.

Several train people had 4 1/2" or 5 1/2" Gauge models that looked superb ( all working steam). They said they were made up from kits but I forgot to get the manufacturers name or Webb site. I believe the cost was well into 4 figures. Any ideas.

P.S. I can't afford one but be nice to look at the site !!!!!!!

Here you go. The company has a chequered past, changing hands, rising from the ashes, renaming, with a few casualties along the way (customers)... Too rich for me as well, though if you do want an engine, it is worth bearing in mind that the machines to build one "will" exceed the cost of the kit, so in real terms they are value for money.... Sheesh!

Thanks, Joules. I went to the modelworks webb site. Veeeery expensive, about £7k plus

The locos I saw weren't as expensive as that! More like half that price.

Any further ideas
