I can't advise on a specific bargain (I bought it!) but Bill Hudson transport books are doing free delivery at the moment. They don't seem to come up in the usual book search engines but found the book I wanted from them at a third the cost of other online sellers via page 4 or 5 of a tenuous Google search. Sometimes insomnia has it's benefits!

Strange, I just ordered an 2EPB and a 66 and the total matched the price on the page (plus 4 quid postage)

It is confusing/strange the way the VAT is separately itemised but not added to the Total cost

Amazon have Hornby bow ended Collett coach for £28.14 again.  I just picked one up, other variants at higher prices.  As we know this offer often disappears quickly due to their algorithms so may revert to £40+ soon.

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.

Looks like Hereford Model Centre has been checking their storage area again, as they have found this Class 155 in West Yorkshire PTE Livery for £75

http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=340_350_354_352&products_id=12441

 

 

They have also listed 2 of the sold out Class 800 sets as well, not bargain prices but bargains compared to ebay and worth flagging:

What about this?

 

http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=524_1&products_id=12432

 

To me (might be wrong) it looks like a super detail A4 and 3 teak coaches (which are also good detail AFAIK for £150.

 

There are some interesting train packs, I can never work out which ones are the  HiFi models and which aren't :-/

Have they got Tony Robinson working for them?

 

As I'm wondering where they are digging them up from. That's about 12 years old.

 

It's also interesting to see the prices of the items. For example the GNER 225 packs. The one that is named (R2427), with working panto is cheaper than the one that isn't, with fake panto (R2002A).

 

R2427 is from 2004 and R2002A is from 2002 so the pricing is a bit weird as I would expect the newer model with better panto to be dearer. The RRPs according to Hornby guide also show R2002A being more expensive. Was it around then they moved production to China? Or did they reduce the price because the competitiveness of the model was dwindling?

Not on the scale of the Model Railways Direct sale (still bitter, missing a bargain sound Class 47 is one thing, but going to the effort of getting permission from the wife and then missing out is on a completely different level!), however anyone in the market for a OO code 100 single slip might like to head over to Ellis Clark Railworks - preowned but described as "As new", 7 quid each!

Not somewhere i've seen bargains before but maybe of interest to someone?  Monk Bar models of York has 37025 in large logo livery and the regional edition intercity class 37 (both bach) on their site for £129.99.  I had seen others trying to track down 37025 but struggling to find one at full price previously.  Alas i already have both, bought at full price...

I am pretty sure these have been raised before on here a while back, but that doesn't detract from the bargain IMO. I do remember it as Monk bar is one of the more local shops to me and that I also have a 37025! So £129.99 is in my opinion.good value for what is a loco in its current state that spends time with other 37s that are also available from Bachmann, the ones that spring to mine are 099 and 421.
