Default Hornby R8722 coal drop

Looking for this part to complete the coal drop ramp. All the other parts are easy available. Checked eBay and Hattons and nothing available.

Think a trip to a toy fair might be on the cards.

I just put the SKU into google and a couple of complete sets turned up. May be worth getting one of those and reselling the bits you don’t need.

What code have you put in Steve ? I have tried and the only complete set I have found is in the States and have sent an email to see if they will ship to the U.K.
I haven’t bought any parts of the set yet as you can get the remaining parts through eBay.

I just put in Hornby r8722 and scrolled through quite a few pages - most were out of stock (obviously) but a couple looked promising.

Not required now thanks. Surprisingly a complete kit turned up on eBay that was weathered and just needed touching up for less than 50 but after speaking to a club member today it wouldn’t be practical for filling up a tender with coal in a small siding. Funny thing is I already have the coal drop from Goathland which could be use with a JCB to shovel up the coal and load the tender.
