From looking at the sale it sounds to me like he’s still got it. So far though no interest in the four Iain Rice engines, including the famous Yellow Peril. I remember running these at a few shows at the time. Operation was spiced up by the North London Tank running the opposite way to everything else. Which I (and others) never quite got the hang of.

Well, if nothing else, I reckon this thread will have got the seller very excited by having the number of eBay watchers increase dramatically, and leaving him/her awaiting a last minute frenzy of bidding activity.

Others may know the history, I'm left wondering. Was the recipient given/paid a price for that stock in good faith towards future use, or expectation of sale en masse a few years later for a good few dollars profit?

Apparently they were bought with the intention that they would feature in an attraction/museum which never happened.
