These sets are currently priced around £400.

this is correct - it is a complete series called LIVE STEAM - basically a re-make of their popular 1950's -1960's ENGLISH MADE Train Sets which actually has Live Steam -
really lovely Train Sets!

the details are below
1/16 Ghanshyam Baug Cama Lane

alternatively you could call ODYSSEY in Chennai - they are a book shop who used to sell HORNBY sets in their store.

Please help with scale compatibilities!!
Hey guys, good to see a thread for scale models of railroad train sets.
We couple of friends are looking out to set up a scale model city. We have zeroed down to the scale of 1:18, as most of the cars and bikes diecasts are available. Now our issues is compatibility. As this is a scale city, we plan to run railraod network through it and set up airport too. Setting up an air force base is not an issue as there a quite a few options available in 1:18 scales. The issue we are facing is in getting compatible commercial aircraft, ships for port and rail road models.
We have been researching since a while, and we realized, correct me if m wrong, that "G - Gauge"/"G - Scale" are of ratio 1:21 or 1:22.4, the most nearest to the scale 1:18!! Because as far as i know,there are no 1:18 scale models available in railroad as such??
So guys, please help me with right inputs over the same. It would be of great help if you could enlighten me over the best compatible railroad scale for 1:18 auto diecasts.

It is Xmas, there is a party! so what better occasion than this to add some excitement. So out came my train set from its boxes. I had just 15 minutes to set up the whole thing before our guests started to arrive hence as you would notice its not the greatest setup but was super exciting and entertaining with all us grownup kids watching the train go round and round
The set up was really shabby as the tracks ran a few inches outside the table and had to be supported by toilet rolls this made the tracks flexible and hence I didn't want to run my more expensive engines so out came my smaller, cheaper test engine.

Though I could never manage to buy one, have always had a fascination towards train sets since childhood. Those memories have been refreshed now.

Really love these trains though I have never owned one.
@Pune guys - Have you been to the Joshi Museum of Model Railways at Kothrud, near Karishma Society? Got reminded of my visit there some 3-4 years back.
Googled it to find their site, Joshi's Museum of Model Railways

wow! nice thread. i love trains... used to play with them when i was kid.
would love to re-start it as a hobby but alas have a naughty son (4 year old) who will not keep quiet. so will have to wait for a few more years before getting into it.
will be tracking this thread.
shantanu... way to go with your boat... maybe a boat thread ?
or maybe we should have a model category ? model cars/trains/planes/boats
