I think it is down to nostalgia. The same could probably be said for my second recent ebay purchase, a Hornby Class 25. The Bachmann model is better is many respects.
Oh yes, and that tree. It is by Noch and it has to be said bears very little resemblance in the flesh to the photo in the catalogue.
Two things I never regret buying are tools and Plastruct.

The other tool I wouldn't be without is a Tamiya scriber which makes cutting Wills sheet much less of a chore.
