Are we in a recession or am I just imagining things? Surely there is less disposable income around, or are folk using the extra money available from the mortgage interest rate falling?
I also dabble a bit in Oe (Fleischmann Magic Train). A few months ago I bought a brand new Magic Train StLB 0-4-0 diesel from Fleischmann Direct for £69 .... just looked at their new prices ..... £125
A Stainz 0-4-0 was a bit more expensive at £89 but it now costs £139
Coaches have jumped from £16 to £32 ..... that's 50%
I'm not even going to look at the wagon prices.
Well, I'll bin it or put on eBay before I buy any more .... how come essentials like food and clothes are staying stable yet items we have no money left for are doubling in price. Am I missing something here?
