Just stopped for a quick cuppa and a browse. Found this set that includes coaches discussed in a recent thread (can't remember which one). Was anyone looking for a set for sale? What would be a sensible maximum to bid? Must admit I'm a little tempted.

Bit odd, the description talks about MTS/MZS but the box says DC and the sticker under the loco indicates 6pin decoder interface. I'm not buying it but asking in case someone else is going to take a punt.

This set according to my LGB Kompedium was around in 2000-2001. Just so happens that I have the LGB Catalog for 2001/2002 that shows the set. Though shown with Sound and Direct Decoder 6 Pin Interface as DAVE says. It was not of course fitted with a Decoder from new, that is not to say that one has not been fitted since. More questions me thinks if bidding and I personally think that the price is a bit on the high side.

Haven't been on here for a while so missed this thread. I bought one of these off eBay two years ago and had to pay €800. This one seems to have gone for £550, so i think that was a decent price, and am very surprised there was only one bid. Admittedly mine turned out to have had an LGB chip fitted, (we were discussing that on here as part of my learning curve when I went digital) as well as lights and figures in all the coaches, and I got free delivery, but even so, that's a good price. It's a lovely set, you get a loco that is different to the No2 that many of us have, and some coaches that cannot be bought separately.
