Hi Jo, these are fine.
My OH will be pleased
Bought for £1.50 GBP about 25 years ago
That was a good price. I saw a good amount of matching boards (to your tabs) at the MAX show this last weekend that were not very expensive. Why not find a railway sleeve district patch and some boards and make a nice little set? I really enjoy making sets and I recommend it to anyone who has a good piece to start with like you do.
