I am no expert, but i think the tony busy bee James is rare as well, as I have one, and did not even know what it was until other day, and I have not seen one for sale often only once on ebay.

Then again I havent been looking for one, but ended up with one from that massive lot i scored not long ago

Busy bee James is becoming very hard to find, and increasingly expensive, but with determination and money it can be found and aquired...but a true RARE train cannot be found!! Trains that are only seen a couple times a year at auction...
Also, after considering the 4 I mentioned earlier, I would rank T'nA Henry & Gordon as equally rare for these reasons:
Though I have yet to ever physically see the Henry model, there IS an image of the train and box online to view, but there is only an empty box to show for the Gordon model...AND of the D&D snowplow set, though it is rare and fetches an incredible premium, I have already seen 6 different sets come up at auction in 6 months, where as in the case for Alfie I have seen maybe 10 over the course of 6 years!!
THIS rate of frequency in availability is what truly determines RARITY.
All the money in the world can't buy something if you can't find it.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

Remember a time long ago, before the Internet and Ebay? Old toys were thrown away, handed down or tossed in the attic. Sure is nice that things can found now especially things that take you back to your childhood. I remember when Ebay just started and some original PC games were going for hundreds if not thousands of dollars. You can't even give them away for a dollar now.

sorry not trying to be mean it is just very hard to read some of the posts as of late, due to the poor spelling and and over all sentence structure. I guess I am not into deciphering code haha!
