Time for BHP hat.

 

Is this a bargain thread or a 1361 review thread?

 

Just tick agree

 

I was pointing out which 1361 to go for since they are exactly the same price. Both bargains have been posted.

 

Would you rather let people buy pups or a better alternative?

I wouldn't base my buying on one video alone.

 

Neither should anyone else.

 

By the way - it wasn't just you posting reviews/comments about alternate models, others started it.

 

I will repeat - this is the bargain hunters thread, not a review hunters thread.

For reviews - go look in the respective manufacturers sections.

Otherwise - it'll become clogged with other reviews.

(and then reviews of reviews)

 

"Don't post a review" about to be added to the OP.

The intention of posting the video wasn't to that effect. A bargain had been posted for £75 down from an RRP of £159. A similar bargain was posted recently, but after watching Sam's video I opted against purchasing so just wanted to make other potential buyers aware that they knew what they were letting themselves in for. As is the mantra of this thread, the definition of a bargain is decided by the potential purchaser.

 

Personally, I found Jason's comment rather condescending which is a shame, but that is a whole new topic and this should stick to bargains. As I say - video posted just to make buyers aware. Nothing else.

Don't think about the money you're spending, but the money you're saving.....:yahoo:

That’s Mrs BB’s logic when she buys three identical items at half price! :wacko:

I struggle to grasp what you intentions of posting are in this thread - i recall lots of comment and no bargains?   Perhaps there is an improvement opportunity here ;)

 

lets keep it on topic  - for everyone to benefit.

 

 

 

 

I don't model in O - but if these bargains keep coming and making it little more to do that OO i may need a bigger house.

 

O Gauge  Shunter  @ £175  today at Rails of Sheffield.

Although that is indeed a very good price, before you buy that that particular class it's worth remembering that there are several other O Gauge locos slightly more but still under the £200 mark (class 08, terrier, 14xxx, pannier tank - and also the sentinel for a bit less) so really think about what you want.

Some good deals there. My personal favourites were the 37558 set for £145, bear in mind it comes with 2 model Vulcans too. Also the WCRC 37 for £125, £190 with sound.

I have seen a video advert on Facebook with the sale of over 20,000 overstocked items used in the construction of Miniatur Wonderland. The advert states it is only vehicles and planes.

 

Nothing really jumps out from the website, but it is possibly this.

Item for the BR blue brigade.

 

Cheapest I've seen the pair of weathered with passengers mk1 with the nse flashes at 60 notes:

(Other link given was to a class 33 using old tooling with incorrect roof profile, why Heljan think its a good idea to distribute those is anyones guess.)

Edited by H2O
Remove link as old tooling so not really a bargain.

I noticed there was some more stuff on there yesterday whilst looking for something else but got distracted and didn't get chance to put the alert up.

 

There is a Network Rail MPV now (previously just Railtrack ones which are a lot more common at knock down prices) at £104:

 

http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=340_350_355_357&products_id=11705

 

I was tempted by this myself but don't need anymore NR stuff.

 

I also thought these EWS VBAs didn't look bad value at £10.99

I know this probably isn't the correct place to post but thanks everyone for notifying about all these bargains. I've got some great stuff in the past few weeks thanks to people posting.
