On the 16mmngm forum, sad news of a theft of equipment was posted. Here's the post.
From:
"Michael" <mike@mssz.co.uk>
To:
16mmngm@yahoogroups.com


Just discovered this morning that most of my 16mm rolling stock has been stolen...
I'd be grateful if anyone could be on the lookout if any of these are offered for sale:
1 x Roundhouse Pooter 0-4-0T, meths fired, black, r/c, named "Cugel"
1 x Fendyke 'Fenman' 0-4-0 battery loco, painted red
1 x Mamod original 0-4-0 SL1 with meths burner, green
1 x Accucraft Baguley, with new chassis, converted to battery r/c using Cliff Barker components (I still have the control unit, though!)
1 x Accucraft 'Lawley' maroon with r/c
1 x Accucraft 'Lyn', manual
1 x Accucarft 'Lew', radio control
2 x Accucraft L&B SR brown bogie open wagons
1 x Accucraft L&B SR brown bogie brake
4 x Accucraft L&B SR brown 4w opens
4 x Accucraft L&B SR brown 4w vans
1 x Accucraft W&L Saloon coach
1 x Accucraft W&L Brake Composite coach
Thanks

Definitely will.
This is such a sad thing to happen to an enthusiast. Commiserations to the victim and testicular separation to the perpetrator.

...unless of course it is listed as a "preexisting condition".

This post sums up why I think we should take photos of our locos and more valuable stock, especially if it does not have any customization or identification markings. Much of what is listed is not something I cannot recognize and as such would not recognise any of it on Ebay or anywhere else.

Commiserations to the loser. Given he time gap since the post maybe some, or all, has been recovered. I hope so.
