After the previous thread was locked down.

 

 

Post your links to useful modelling bargains here. And that includes tools and materials that may be of use, not just models.

 

Please note that these bargains are available others - at the time of posting - and not that you've just obtained the one and only available item.

 

Please add any extra details that may be helpful to others - for example - only available to shop callers/not an online offer etc.

 

The odd discussion and question about said bargains are welcomed, but don't go mad with it, or the self-appointed Bargain Hunter Police will be on your case.

 

Happy Hunting!

 

Cheers,

Mick

 

edit - added a couple of extra points of reference to aid the smooth flow of this thread.

Sounds good. I deliberately stopped posting on the previous thread after the aforementioned "Police" piled in for the odd word off topic.

the whole idea of a Bargain Hunter Thread is/ was to alert guys like me, who live in france, to Bargains, preferably rail ones, that i have missed, on line,  To that end the previous thread was excellent. I am hopeful that this new one, will do just that.  Off topic, is the thorn in the side of all forums, and others that i was on, have brought in more moderators than you can throw a stick at. I would like to think that this overkill approach, will not start to apply on this forum, else the departure rate will match that of the others. john

So here goes . . .

I'm not an ER man, but as there's only one place that I've seen this being sold for cheaper (Hornby Sales at Warley last year) this seems a good price.

Clearly bargains will in some cases reflect the eye of the beholder but Rails today have added 4 x B&C portholes for £99.50+ p/p that's more or less £25 a pop. Ind coaches are around the £32 mark.

Reasonable sized sale at TMC worth having a read through, mostly new stuff but some of the TMC weathered stuff going cheap as well.

They've got a 4-VEP on there at £135 which isn't a bad price for an EMU.

Ian Allan in Birmingham have some low relief Scenecraft buildings (Shop fronts etc.) at about 30-40% off list as well as some other Scenecraft items such as "Highley Cattle Dock"

There are also some SR Brown Plywood Vans, as well as the LMS type cattle wagon in both NE Brown & NE Bauxite all with useful reductions

Also couple of GWR Shunters trucks as well as the previously mentioned Coal Trader triple pack (weathered) and some BR & Thomson coaches.

 

No Locos or MUs just now

I have not checked their other Bachmann Scenecraft prices but I was looking for a 44-101 pumping station and I found Pufferwillies (Sheffield Transport models) are selling it at £13.50   http://pufferwillies...mping_station_/  . This compares to other retailers online where it is between £25 and £30.

Pufferwillies web-site requires adding to basket to see if an item is in stock.

 

Doing this for the Pumping Station gets you this message

Ah yes, I noticed them the other day. I also noticed some N Gauge reduced stock, including some weathered 16 tonners at £8.50. If only they were in 00 gauge . . .

No models as such, but London Transport Museum have a flash sale on;

 

https://www.ltmuseum.../all-sale-items

 

If you are looking for something for the younger members of the family the LU Brio style models are 20% off.

 

I also stumbled across this when looking at a certain deals site;

 

https://www.hotukdea...ys-r-us-2764685

 

No doubt the Rev W Audrey would be turning in his grave, but If you cliick through and watch the video it looks quite entertaining!

Could be good for pointing the grandkids in the right direction towards railway modelling...!

Just seen on eBay, a Hornby current spec Royal Train class 67006, one of the special edition ones which I understand are hard to get hold of now, for just over 100 sheets:

http://www.ebay.co.u...hQAAOSwTFNZbzRn

Upon reading the description, I realised this is actually the eBay store of my local model shop, so I can confirm this is a good seller and an actual model shop that is selling. No connection other than a regular satisfied customer.

Hope this may be of use,
Jack.

If it's rare and as it's second hand maybe a brand new one at £124.50 is reasonable?

BRM are doing their supermarket deal this month again, although this time it's a free copy of Narrow Gauge World, not Garden Rail. Last time the double mag wasn't available in regular newsagents/ Smiths. I bought a copy in Sainsbury's this morning.
