Does this count as 'obsessive-compulsive'? :wondering:

In the harsh light of day.. Even the 'Man-Cave' is no good.. :rolleyes:
Just a metal skin. No insulation, the internal 'worktop' is Sterling Board! - A nasty, horrible board made out of 'cornflakes' of the tattiest bits of wood they can find, and turns to mush if there is a drop of moisture about..

don't think I will be watching this one? :shake:

A collection is something that is acquired over years of dreaming, saving up, looking forward to finally getting, or building. To buy that amount of kit in one go doesn't seem quite the same. You'd never be able to test it all properly and appreciatively

I've seen that advertised before, some time ago. I doubt many would be prepared to buy the whole lot.

I could see a 'career', cataloguing it, and moving it on..

I would be concerned about the trailer being engineered correctly for road registration. The lack of lining and fit-out is no great concern.
It has 2 bogies with 4 wheels each. Not a common set-up. It could be a lemon not fit for what it has been intended for.

He does state it would need more work, to be 'street-legal'..

Having always hankered after a railway vehicle, to use as a shed/workshop, it was that that interested me. - The fact it is not fit for that, and lives under a shelter (with our climate) puts me off.
Being on road-wheels, would make it easier to get on-site. - A railway vehicle would need to be craned-in. ££££££!

More in my budget, and practical, would be to build a shed to resemble a rural halt..

Rural halts these days are busy shelters, not really practical! :giggle::giggle::giggle:
