  1. The cheap Class 60s appear to have gone for now, but as with everything on Amazon, the more people that look or buy, the higher the price goes. However, I’ve just ordered these two items, R3412 BR Early Crest S15 for £82.69 with free delivery, as cheap as I can find anywhere when you take postage into account, plus you can pay in 5 instalments if you wish, which makes it a pocket money purchase for a decent 4-6-0 locomotive. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01L4H31OO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Also, for those Southern region m
  2. Many thanks for the links, I managed to purchase the last one of Achilles earlier this morning. I was caught napping on these, I hadn’t realised they were released, until I saw this thread reporting that they are virtually sold out already. Part of my plan to go with an Accurascale Mk5 set, so very grateful to have found one. There seem to be plenty of other TPE Class 68s that Dapol could produce, hopefully the fast sell out will give them confidence for another batch.
  3. Just to say the R40141 coaches are back in stock on Hornby.com. I have just managed to place an order anyway, and to think I was almost tempted to try Olivias, I say almost....
  4. Just tried the OCT10 discount code at 365 games, but it tells me it has expired. In the spirit of the thread, Kernow have some very good bargains at the moment one noticeable one being a Hornby DB Schenker Class 67 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/56211/R3574-Hornby-Class-67-Diesel-Locomotive-number-67-013
  5. Hattons have a nice selection of O gauge bargains. Highlights include Dapol Sentinels at £130, Heljan Class 128s from £220 and Heljan Class 50s, including limited editions, at £525. https://www.hattons.co.uk/newsdetail.aspx?id=863
  6. Rails of Sheffield have a Hornby sale with up to 50% off. https://railsofsheffield.com/groups/3024/Hornby-bargains?fbclid=IwAR0OuUkyMbnTESV5ZuJRP0Fl7GmiIhPLeh0yKIxUpupvwXI12mt4KfPZk-4 Nothing we haven’t seen reduced before, but generally good prices and it’s been a while since the B17s have been available at this price and 3 liveries of Class 71s.
  7. And just spotted another couple of bargains at Bure Valley Models R3399 EWS Class 67 Freight Pack at £110 http://www.burevalleymodels.com/p/8181/R3399---EWS-Class-67-Freight-Pack R3398 Lyme Regis Branch Pack at £115 http://www.burevalleymodels.com/p/9241/R3398---Lyme-Regis-Branch-Train-Pack 3 of each as I post this, sadly I am spent up or I would have gone for the Lyme Regis pack.
  8. Just out of interest, how much were Rails selling the Pannier and Lionheart coaches for? Got a set direct from Lionheart for £240 a few weeks ago. Just spotted this morning that Bure Valley Models are selling Hornby GWR Sliding Door MK3 coaches for just £26 each. http://www.burevalleymodels.com/p/14559/R4896A---GWR-Mk3-Sliding-Door-TGS---Era-11 I was able to pickup a complete Rake of 4 to make up set GW03, I had the last complete set, but as I post there is enough remaining stock for 2 or 3 rakes of set GW04. EDIT. I am now confused by two c
  9. I don’t know in this specific case, but Rails normally accept offers up to about 10% off the asking price. so if you are interested there are currently 4 left, maybe try offering around £265. I managed to obtain one from a dealer in Germany a while back for around £200 including delivery, that dealer Modellbahn Union has sold out, but it might be worth a trail of other European dealers, as the set is bound to be less in demand over there.
  10. Hornby R3707 Ruston & Hornsby 48DS in Queen Anne Distillery Livery for £59.99 at Kernow. http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/61921/R3707-WSL-Hornby-Ruston-and-Hornsby-48DS-0-4-0-Diesel-Locomotive Lowest price I have spotted this for so far. Paid more for mine a short while back, having honestly expected this livery to sell out quickly. We are nothing if not an unpredictable bunch us modellers!
  11. Only just seen this, just after I got despatch confirmation of my Chocolate and Cream motorised one from Cheltenham Model Centre, guess they didn’t see the note from Dapol in time either. Mind you, I was only planning on running it off a 9v battery in any case, so assuming it works fine I’ll probably just keep it anyway. Guessing the dodgy component is part of a rectifier to change AC current to DC for the motor. If the detailed information gets published it is probably a simple soldering job and a few pence of component anyway. Still looking forward to receiving it in the next few
  12. A very large box arrived here from Dapol / Lionheart just over an hour ago. Yes, Garry was right to tell me not to doubt, the 64XX and St Ives Branch B set coaches have arrived. To avoid thread drift, I will take the discussion on the items to the appropriate threads on the forum. All I can say about both the loco and the coaches is wow. It has to be one of the nicest, most well constructed locomotive that I own in any scale. Just a reminder that Lionheart are still offering the St Ives B set of coaches for £200 https://www.lionhearttrains.co
  13. There is a rather nice page of information on the pannier tank 6435 here. Nearest depot allocation being Yeovil Town, but she has made it in to Cornwall in preservation at the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, nearly St Ives! https://preservedbritishsteamlocomotives.com/6435-2/ The Class 08 D3120 had a rather shorter life, being withdrawn in 1967, after just 12 years in service, and cut up the following year! I see that the LMS Crimson Jinty tank is another special exclusive to DCC Supplies, so not sure what is going on there. The prototype made it in to preservation
  14. Thanks Garry! Yes, I re read my post and thought I might be sounding a bit too negative! I too am tempted by that Dapol 08, I couldn’t understand the odd product code, as Dapol would usually take the format 7D-XXX-XXX, so that explains it. It is a good price and would go well with an early crest pannier, even though I doubt it is a Cornish-based 08. Mind you, one can take things too far and I am no scale modeller, just if it looks right. The Pannier probably never ventured near the St Ives branch. There is a good price on an LMS red Jinty tank as well...... https://www.Dapo
  15. They are now showing the Suburban B set for £200 without the loco, but still a bargain in itself as that is around half the price of the box shifters. Difficult to swallow when you may have missed out on the bundle, but still a great deal for two O scale coaches with interior lights and a working tail lamp. https://www.lionhearttrains.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=53 As I stated on Saturday, although I was ‘lucky’ enough to grab one of the last 2 sets, I’ll believe it when I have the loco and coaches in my hands. Not trying to be negative, just man
