Lovely and beautifully engineered 2 1/2" gauge model...... etc.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-1-2-Inch-Gauge-3-Scratch-Built-0-4-0-Clockwork-Loco-Guards-Van-Wagon-GNR/253838000267?hash=item3b19ec808b:g:-vEAAOSw1iNa6CLs

This has been listed on Ebay for some while and it is no surprise that it hasn't attracted a buyer.
It is a heap of junk offered at 750GBP.

It almost has a bit of a Rowland Emett type charm to it, but for the asking price, will never attract anyone.
I can see it going for something like £50 for how odd it is, but it certainly is not "beautifully engineered".
