While maybe not strictly a full-on 'bargain', given that the new batch (through EFE Rail) is retailing at £135 (also from Rails), then £99 for a Heljan Hymek in 4mm is a price we're unlikely to see again. The 35 is no longer in the Heljan catalogue, and some retailers (usual suspects) have some stocks of the last batch, generally around £110.

00 Stanier coaches from Rails at £9.95 each, limited stocks. Just had an email from them, but not my field of interest.

The Hornby Hobbies outlet shop in Swindon is closing down.  It's been this way for a week, and the staff were commenting on how it's begun to get so busy there's a queue out the store for the first time ever - not that it's difficult at the moment as only 8 people are allowed in the store.  My advice is that if you do go in, please abide by social distancing.  Apparently some model railway enthusiasts are also complete muppets about this when it comes to bargain hunting. 

 

There are signs proclaiming "40% off locomotives".  This is true for some things, not necessarily for others, but I'd say much of the locomotives (some at good prices anyway) and some (but not all) of the rolling stock is now firmly in the 'bargain' territory.

 

I just picked up a streamlined Coronation (King George VI) for £114, for example, and they had four types available (Coronation, Princess Liz in blue, King George and Duchess of Hamilton in crimson.)

 

Lots of shop bleached/box damaged stock on the tables - mostly coaches for £20-25 - basically halfprice.  They had some LNER Thompson suburbans in that pile, but what's left is mostly Era 4/5 British Railways stuff from all regions.  I collected much of the LMS Stanier stock at that price, sorry.  :)  Hopefully there's a bit more 'out back'.

 

Also - Scalextric cars and Airfix kits of all stripes at these discounts too.

 

Good luck!

An interesting Amazon one I spotted earlier, an ATW 153 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00464BS7U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

 

This appears to be one of their pricing algorithm bargains. It's showing as temporarily out of stock, but will be back-ordered and delivered - I'm not sure whether it will though as its from the range almost a good 10 years ago, but then again I recently ordered something from Amazon which was temporarily out of stock, but then ordered in and delivered. We will see - but for £53 for a 153, even though its not my era, I couldn't resist. If unavailable, I'll get my money back so no loss. It's still showing at that price after my purchase, sold and dispatched by Amazon itself.

I put in for one to go with my inexplicable collection of Class 66 locos.

Given "Currently Unavailable", I expect to get a cancellation email tomorrow!

 

Update 10/09/20:  Just got an email from Amazon saying that they're unable to source any more so my order has been cancelled.  I'm not surprised, I was expecting a cancellation...

I have just been into Bourton Model Railway Shop and they have the Hornby Class 800 test train (R3579 and R4897, both limited edition of 500) for a bundle price of £395. Cheaper than buying separately and I aren't aware of anywhere with both on stock either let alone a bundle price for both.

 

I was tempted...

RES 47 for £93.46:

 

https://themodelshop-northampton.co.uk/product/Bachmann/class-47-2/

 

I think this is RRP from when released, but given that was 8 years ago it makes for a good price now IMO unless there is something I don't know about this loco.

That’s a good price , there’s not much demand for these, ive been trying to sell a new one on eBay for ages with no luck. May have to split the body and chassis

£47.59 for a pair of MTU TTS decoders looks quite good. I have a couple of HSTs I might try them with. If I don't get on I won't lose much money I don't expect.

This seems good. £102 for a DCC fitted Express Passenger locomotive. It's Hornby, but not railroad as far as I can see. Says first available in 2009, so maybe it's just an older model going cheap but £102 seems to compare favourably compared to other prices a quick google brings up.

 

It's showing out of stock, but it still lets you order, so we will see if it ever gets fulfilled or not...

You have made my day. I was waiting for this at a good price. Breaks my policy of only buying kettles still in existence but I really wanted this one because I like the colour.

 

Says allow 10 days before dispatch though so could get pulled? I have bought from these before OK.

Been wanting this too, thanks to original poster.

If you search on Hornby there are a few items at good prices like some 87s at around the £130 mark
