Motorized Alfie? (newbie question)
#1
Sorry if this is a silly question, but motorized Alfie exists, correct? I mean it wasn't just a one-off promotional things, because I know I've seen a boxed up alfie online (at least an archived image). I recently had purchased a thomas train from a seller online, and s/he asked if I was looking for any particular trains. I said sure, and mentioned motorized alfie, among other trains/vehicles. The seller said motorized alfie didn't exist as a mass marketed toy. I thought they were wrong about that, but then figured maybe I was just mistaken. Anyways, I just thought I'd ask the experts on here. And of course, if anyone has a (potentially mythical?) alfie they are looking to sell, I know someone who would be interested (hint: it's me!  Big Grin ). Thanks guys

Definitely exists. Although as you mentioned it is extremely rare and I believe the last one sold may have sold for $500+. Muddy would have more info on Alfie.

Motorized Alfie has not come up for sale at auction for 4 years now...
The last one seen sold for $425.00 on eBay in early 2015.

Thanks. So I was half right I guess. Alfie does actually exist, though based on his rarity (and price) he almost doesn't exist! Wow, $400/500? Alfie is a unicorn.

Any truth to the fact that your new Bride married you for your train collection Muddy? Big Grin

I would have to suspect that it's a likely possibility, considering my absence of good looks or charm. Big Grin

Alfie may have been common at the time, but the fact that Jack, Alfie, and Ned were the only motorized Sodor Construction Company road vehicles, means that they have sort of become forgotten. Nearly all of the SCC were released as unpowered vehicles, including Jack.

Hi Jdog, nice to see you!

Forgive me my ignorance for the SCC vehicles...I assume that Terrence isn't part of that group?

Well if anyone knows anyone who is willing to part/sell/trade an Alfie, please send them my way. I've got a bee in my bonnet to locate one of these unicorns (I'm sure I'm not the only one).

I'm definitely needing him as well.
Making Customs, Filming Videos and looking for the purest engines. That's how I roll here on Blue Plastic Tracks.

I found an old thread on an Alfie that apparently came up for auction (or maybe buy it now?) on eBay a few years ago for something north of $500. If that's the going rate, then I think I'll definitely get outbid as well!
