RAIL Magazine (and hundreds of other UK Magazines and newspapers) can also be viewed on Pressreader.com for free if you have a current UK County Council Library Account. Backnumbers are also viewable. Just one warning ~ once experienced, you will be spending a lot of time on your computer reading these free magazines.

 

For the best experience, use a large screen monitor/desktop computer setup, 26" is a good size.  I wouldn't suggest viewing on a mobile phone!

 

Enjoy.

Hmm.  I can see CM, but not Model Rail...

 

You would expect to see Model Rail with Continental Modeller under 'Cooking & Hobbies Magazines' but it's grouped in with all the other titles at the bottom of the page (along with Heritage Railway, RAIL and The RAILWAY Magazine). 

 

 

Thanks, @SR71:drink_mini:

Under the UK Magazines menu of Pressreader.com,  both RAIL Magazine AND ModelRail are shown ~ but for some unknown reason they are included under the AUTOMOTIVE tab menu. Weird, but at least they're available!!

For Amex cardholders Hattons counts as one of their "small shops" with a £5 credit when you spend (I think £10). Cardholders can activate the offer in their Amex UK app under offers.

According to the T&C's that only counts if you physically use the card in store I believe. Unless, I'm misunderstanding something. Okay if you live near such a store though.

Got myself a £5 credit from Hattons and didn't physically use it in the store.

I've certainly used the same offer from AMEX before for Kernow and had things delivered by mail order

Couple from AC Slotcars on eBay - again, one of each but they put similar items on from time to time. Both are used, so would advise to study photographs carefully. Previously bought a used model off them that was in fantastic condition, but as always with delicate models - pays to be careful.

 

EDIT - NOW SOLD Dogbox in GWR livery - £95 (free post with Best Offer available):

SDR's ebay page has some new stuff added.  Mostly Dapol 4mm GWR railcars (but some other items incl blue Western).  £126.99 with 20pct off code makes them approx £101.60

I tried that with a Northern Ireland address & it told me "This code can't be applied to your order" ?

Maybe its just UK mainland ?

T&Cs, say:

This offer is open to users registered on eBay.co.uk who must be 18 years of age or older, and who have a UK shipping address.

 

Might be worth pinging Ebay and check why

I've just had an online chat with an E Bay agent & they deny there ever was a discount code ?

The agent tried to tell me the seller changed it but it had nothing to do with the seller as it was an E Bay discount. Then they said I must have been looking at another site :rolleyes:

This is the second time something like this has happened to me.

It happened last year as well. Then they told me the code had expired between the time I clicked Buy now & the time I entered the code.

They're as bad as Amazon now for the tricks they try to pull :mad_mini:

I was sending it to a UK address.

Apologies I may have presented it badly.  Railcars were in effect £102, what I meant to be conveying was that there were other items as well (but not necc the same price as there was a SECR C class as well, and a Bachmann 24/1)

Lidl have had some more under cabinet fluorescent styled 573mm long LED lights, £5.99 or 2 for £10. May be a week or two so stocks may be limited or gone, I picked three up on Thursday. They are identical in shape and cable fitting to the Sensio ones sold by Tool Station other than being cool white as opposed to the warm white of the basic type offered by Tool Station; TS do sell also sell ones switchable between warm, cool and natural. The Lidl ones come with a connecting cable which the TS sell separately and also being nominally a trade outlet the power lead supplied by TS has no plug. Price wise a slightly shorter warm white 524mm from TS is more than two of the Lidl ones and the switchable one three times.
