Rather than order this book through ebay, if you go to the firms own website - https://www.booksetc.co.uk/books/view/-9781913295219

you will find the book can be purchased for £14.94 including FREE postage at the present time.

 

There is no indication as to the stock level on their own website, but it is one less since my purchase a short while ago.

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.

It's the last couple of weeks of the Transport Models Preston closing down sale

 

25% off when you spend £20

 

https://www.kitlady.co.uk/

 

 

And that's on top of the any other discount if applicable.

 

The online store will close at the end of 14th August 2020

Mail order and click & collect will not be available after this date

 

We now have the final reduction on the online store with 25% off when you spend £20 (excluding shipping)

This includes items that are already discounted.

So if an item already has 15% off you get an extra 25% off

The discount is automatically calculated at checkout so no code is needed.

 

You can either order via the website or by telephone, pay for your goods and then collect them or we can post them out.

But I looked at the Class 31 Hornby and they are listing at full RRP it appears as £170, once discounts are applied it’s not so much of a bargain, didn’t bother trawling the rest of the site TBH.


Not everything will be a bargain...due to the nature of a closing down sale, most bargains go early and this seems to have happened since the sale was first posted a few weeks ago. FYI I bought a Hornby new tooling 87 for £120 which I was pleased with; there were many other items that seemed very cheap but these have mostly gone now.

 

I had another look this week after receiving an email advising closing on the 14th August and am about to make another order. Whilst lots has gone as I say, some things still appear to be a bargain such as some Bachmann wagons which (I think) have hardly ever been discounted but are with this closing 25% off.

 

Whilst they can’t please all, I’d suggest a look and see if there’s anything for you. Very sad to see the shop and online store closing having been a long standing satisfied customer, this being my nearest model shop since I was a child.

 

Jack.

So you'll be posting the bargain when you find it cheaper?

Here you go..

 

https://www.collettsmodelshop.co.uk/product/Hornby-r3746-br-class-31-a1a-a1a-31102-era-7/

 

https://railsofsheffield.com/search?searchTerm=R3746
 

https://cheltenhammodelcentre.com/br-class-31-a1a-a1a-31102~r3746-p.html

 

all in the same price range as or lower as Kitlady’s website after discount. Plus, as none of the above are going out of business.. so your aftersale chances are better too.

 

other shops too have the 31 in the 25% off range, google is your friend. Similar Pricing applies to many other items listed on their site...

Here we go again bye bye BH MK2!

Not helpful as it only adds to the tally of non bargain posts.

 

I suggest an exchange rate of two bargains per whinge :)

Here's my two for my comment above.

 

This one at more than 50% off has to be good?

http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/51205/31-379-Bachmann-2EPB-2-Car-EMU-Set-number-5771-in-BR-Green

 

Likewise this:

I know the 20% off eBay coupon has been mentioned before, but just in case it ends shortly South Devon Railway have over the last few weeks added a number of new items:

 

for example - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hornby-R3707-Ruston-Hornsby-48DS-Queen-Anne-Longmorn-Distillery-with-Wagon/383653207692?hash=item5953835e8c:g:b0AAAOSwCQJfIB-i

having a quick look back on earlier posts this seems to be about the lowest price it has been (£57.59 + post).

 

Certainly I was very pleased with my 009 purchase a couple of weeks ago:

the GVT Baldwin - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bachmann-391-029-Baldwin-Class-10-12-D-4-6-0T-Glyn-Valley-Tramway-Lined/383630064928

at £107.99 + post. Still four versions available!

 

Have a search through their other items - most of them have the 20% coupon offer.

This seems a bargain to me:

38-100 Bachmann 34 Ton PNA Ballast Spoil Wagon £7:76

Temporarily out of stock but you can order it (Kernow have always delivered in the end in similar instances) 

http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/12412/38-100-Bachmann-34-Ton-PNA-Ballast-Spoil-Wagon

Hi,

 

The RRP of this wagon should be about three times the RRP shown on the Kernow website so it may be an old entry. 

 

The wagon does not appear to be on the Bachmann website at present.

 

Regards

 

Nick
