Quite like that actually......in an oddly different way, great value.......while on the site Iclicked the option for the compatible sound decoder, made me think for moment when a sound decoder is £20 more than the actual Loco it’s going in :huh:  please this is not a “sound decoder are too expensive” comment, just made me think for a moment.

I don't mind it, and if it wasn't for the fact have just bought 2 Hattons ones with another 2 on the way end of next month I'd probably have bitten because it's a good deal. My point about being undesirable is that they normally don't struggle shifting special liveries but this has been discounted to this level on and off since Christmas

I took the plunge and ordered Silver Fox... diecast metal A4, with DCC sound and two speakers.

it has no lights/smoke or the manual, but it does come with sound, extra fittings, tyred wheel, fixed catazzi and the Cab rain sheet.

 

under the hood fitting a £20 Seuthe could get me back to smoke, and <£5 can get me a whistle.

£160 is quite a saving on £399.

Hereford models have almost the full rake of the previous release of LNER Mk3s at £31.50 each. Only one missing I am aware of is the buffet car which can be had from Rainbow for £39 by the looks of it, or the new one pre ordered for £31.50 from a lot of places.

 

As far as I am aware these LNER coaches are sought after (maybe less so now they are doing another run), so RRP minus 10% is fairly good I'd say.

Only one left now :)

I'm guessing the whistle is missing because it's attached to the missing fancy smoke unit?

If you're quick (before the infamous Amazon pricing algorithm kicks in), you can snap up a Maunsell Brake Third in carmine & cream for £18.82, so if you add a product costing £1.18 to your basket you get free delivery.

 

IT SOLD - NOW BACK UP TO £36.

Now showing £35.95 on Amazon.

If you look hard enough you can find these coaches available for around the £25 mark in sales at various outlets during the year.

Well, that's because someone must have bought one! There were 11 in stock and now there's 10; and the pricing algorithm has booted the price back up by almost 100%! I hope an RMwebber benefited from my pointing this out. 

 

I'd better stop there because I know how irate people get at posts on this thread that don't contain bargains...

Good of you to point out the original bargain. As you say, let's hope someone from RMweb secured a bargain.
