Apologies if I'm just out of touch... but as I've never seen one before at this price... in case anyone is interested!

Hattons also have suspicious number of really cheap EFE models (including Eastern Counties and Lincolnshire Road Car).

Has something happened to EFE that's causing them to be looking to sell off a lot of stock?  (I'm very out of touch...)

EFE went into liquidation around the end of last year.  The remains have been bought by Bachmann who are now starting to bring out new models - very slowly in comparison with the 'old' EFE. Nothing local that I can think of.  Also no new castings announced so far.

Ah!  That's sad :-(  I missed that at the time, but I was wondering!   I maybe haven't looked at bus models for over a year.
