That is a good result. I have bought from ellisclark before. I remember one item a Harz 2-6-2T which they described as RC in fact it had an XLS decoder inside. The price was good just for the loco. They do respond to emails and queries. Because they sell a lot of second hand stuff they are somewhat reliant perhaps over reliant on what the previous owner says about the loco. I would buy from them again but like buying any secondhand goods you need to be prepared for the occasional surprise!Just to wrap this up. A very happy ending. The vendor has refunded the amount it would cost for buying a suitable two motor decoder. I'm really pleased with that quality of response.
Thanks to all for their comments and assistance. Great group this.
