MRJ Manning Wardle Key Components Pack

Postby Alastairr » Sun Oct 14, 2012 5:26 pm

Hi,

In hope rather than expectation...

Does anyone have a spare of the MRJ project Manning Wardle 'F' Class components pack? This included the lost wax brass castings for the 4mm scratchbuilding series that ran from MRJ 66-70.

I've just seen a set being sold on a popular online auction site, they went for three times the original price, maybe that is what 20 years of inflation does.

The components were unbranded and looked to be issued by MRJ themselves, so it is difficult to see which manufacturer originally put them together.

Cheers,

Alastair

Thanks David, I had a hunch they were from Branchlines but wasn't sure whether the parts survived the change in ownership. I shall get in touch with them.

Cheers,

Alastair

Seems strange that all these years later I would still be interested building a little MW. I think I better send off an email as well!

If this information becomes more widely known, there may well be more of these packs ending up on eBay.....
That would be an ecumenical matter.
