The Base Station
The base station was less impressive compared to the vehicles but it was a nice accessory. I have an incomplete one in a damaged box somewhere in the attic. Recently I managed to acquire one fully complete and boxed base off eBay! The box itself is in excellent condition and even came with the original assembly leaflet. BHS in Glasgow used to have one of these in the center of a display area and would have numerous vehicles driving about the display all day. The thing was that Explorers couldn't turn and they would end up trying to drive up a wall which would burn out the motors. These were running all day and I'm sure BHS went through a ton of them!
