Whilst I am a big model railway fan myself, my layout exists for the enjoyment of my two sons (aged 5 and 1, respectively). This kind of product makes a great addition to layouts designed for children. it makes for good interaction between road vehicles and the railway, helping younger children to 'bring the layout to life' rather than just drive the rolling stock (which is great fun in itself!)
The weighbridge and scales benefits from the usual Hornby strenghts: it is well put together, has nice if not spectacular details and is finished reasonably well, if not to the same quality as suppliers such as Bachmann and Farish.
On the downside, it is rather expensive in absolute terms. £11 for such a small product is expensive in anyone's terms, particularly if, like me, you are leaving this stuff open to use/abuse (however well meaning) by small children. That said, the play value is worth it in itself. Happy weighing!
