To paraphrase Maikha out of the model Railway forums:
This thread was created as a catalyst for some of us users who are looking for particular items of interest, and want to make their search known publically.
So, for categories/guidelines for posting Wanted 'adverts'....
-Use Bold text for the actual advert
-Preferrably this thread should only be used for miniature railway collectables, such as specific carriages/locomotives/traction engine/ miniature steam boats, parts, specific tools to aid the construction of,
which you cannot find via other avenues.
A specific thread about it should be ok if required, especially if there may be discussion on it (ie the "F" class thread july 2009).
-State clearly your location in terms of suburb and state.
-State your desired condition of the item (Most would rather good condition, although some like myself don't mind it in rooted condition).
-State your desired price to pay for the item and any terms of negotiation
-Email address and/or preferred contact. (Use discretion when posting mobile phone numbers here).
-After you have acquired your desired item, it's best to remove the post wanting it. Otherwise, you can seek the assistance of a moderator to remove all posts concerning your complete transation.
Also, be serious about your purchase. This thread is for people who are really actively seeking an item and have the funds to immediately make the purchase. Do not post WANTED items that are mainly pipedreams that you'll oneday get when you have the money and the item.
If one were to have an item in question, and wanted to get rid of it to you, the avenue for that is to contact them by their preferred means, and then the rest is done on the basis of negotiation as a private sale (And in no terms, is Railpage Australia™ responsible for anything in this transaction).
