Default What's your latest acquisition

I thought we already had a thread for this but it seems we didn't so here it is, a place where you can now tell us what your latest purchases, or gifts are that you have received,

The latest was a Hornby Evening Star a couple of weeks ago (BNIB from Kernow - was a birthday pressie from my missus, bless her) and a very cheap Mallard (split from the recent Mallard set) for £55 from Hatton's

Hoping that Hornby will get Manston to me shortly after Xmas....

Recently acquired:-

Mobile Post Office (not fitted to track)
Crane wagon (not very good on any curves)
Skaledale unpainted cottage (being painted today)
Skaledale Water Tower
Footbridge

I also briefly had Cock 'O The North but this had to be returned so that one is now un-acquired.

All either in the BF sale or Advent Calendar offers.

Yes Brian but you dont keep them so they are not for you are they. It is a good job Hattons don't contribute to this thread.

John, I collect locos, and only sell a fraction of what i get, the idea is to help other members get cheaper locos.
