Neil Medhurst – dublobear

It was with shock and great sadness that I learnt today of the passing of Neil Medhurst well known on ebay as dublobear.

Neil has, through ebay, supplied over many years a good number of the 3 rail conversions that I run on my layout. During the last 2 or 3 years we have corresponded frequently and I have been able to have conversions specially made for me which have greatly enhanced my layout. My last three engines were all supplied by Neil. It seems amazing that my last loco, a Hornby Black 5 Conversion, might be the last that I will receive from Neil.

I will always remember Neil as I run his many trains around my layout, a person I never met but through the internet and ebay was first thought of as an honest and genuine trader and later as an ebay friend.

I will miss him and his conversions, my best to all his relations and friends.

  1. Being a very infrequent visitor to this sight.I was shocked to read about Neil as I to have some of his converted 3 rail engines together with getting some individual purchases via internet.
    My belated condolences to his family and I ‘m sure he will well missed by them as he is by his family.
