Massive sale at model railways direct

 

https://www.modelrailwaysdirect.co.uk/special-offers/

 

Some real bargains to be had

 

Wow,  just picked up a Bachmann LNER 04  (GBP49.17 after VAT off) and a Hornby R3397 LMS Suburban train pack (GBP111.14 after VAT off)  for a ridiculously low price.  Shipping is a little more than Hattons but these days prices like this are hard to find.

19.99 for a Bachmann 00 Mk1 BSK in blue grey is the cheapest I have seen them in years....

 

Indeed yes. Bought a new Bachmann MK1 RMB for about the same price as going to the Doncaster Toy Fair tomorrow for a secondhand example.

The Hornby R1234 Howarts set is half price at Hawkins Bazaar, cheapest I’ve seen

 

https://www.hawkin.com/harry-potter-hogwarts-express-Hornby-r1234m

Grab it quick at that price if you want it. Well before Christmas it was at £150 one evening, when I went to buy it the following morning for click and collect at the nearest store (as I had to visit that town anyway for something else that had cropped up) I found overnight it had gone back to full RRP.

Discounting delivery, it works out at £22.75 per carriage, Railroad pricing!

I wanted one, it fits into my layouts early 60s Southern Region identity, but at the normal price I had rather a lot of resistance.

 

However...

 

("stop following Bargain Hunters pages" is something that will be added to the New Years Resolution list)

I took advantage of this for my grandson earlier this morning for £99.50 including delivery.

https://www.hawkin.com/harry-potter-hogwarts-express-Hornby-r1234m

 

As of 12.35pm today this set was still available for £99.50 which includes the Hornby Midimat and comes with free delivery. 

 

The same set was/is available from the normal model railway outlets WITHOUT the Hornby Midimat. The difference is in the Hornby Part Number. The sets at Hawkin are R1234m. The normal sets are Part Number R1234. That last "m" in the part number is very significant and is the one that contains the midimat.

 

Hope that clarifies what you will actually receive.

Happy New Year to all.

For those wanting to model WCRC coaches, the blue-grey 39-100C is the ideal donor vehicle for "Kitchen" 1961...….

Difficult to resist at that price.

(Yet another one on the to-do list)

 

Cheers,

Mick

Winter sale announcement from Rails:

 

At first glance it appears to be a restatement of the "sale" prices they've been offering for at least a month.  The remnants of the Hornby Thomas range (Edward, and two brake coaches) have been offered at those prices for even longer!

Plus Model Railways Direct are undercutting most of those too in their sale

The Works have a "Wooden Tumbling Tower" set for £3.

 

That gives you 54 pieces of wood* approx 2" by 5/8" by 3/8" (the sizes come out nicer in inches than mm), all nicely cut to the same size.

 

It's very light wood - almost feels like balsa - but I'm sure there are plenty of uses it could be put to.

 

In particular, with the pieces on their side they are just about the right height to make a 00 guage platform once you've added a few thicknesses of cereal packet card for the surface.

 

I'm not sure how long they would stand up to actually being used to play Jenga, but that's not the point.

 

If you have a local shop and they're not in, you can order them as click and collect for no extra charge. (And when you collect, you get 10% off anything else you buy in the shop...)

 

* According to the box. I haven't counted.
