At this point if they cancel your orders again they could probably run afoul of trading standards. Refusing to sell once because an item was mis-priced is fine, but doing that repeatedly is a problem.

 

And sharing a bargain, of sorts, a Western Pullman for 780 GBP. Cheaper than any of the other retailers I could find it at within three pages of google searching http://www.burevalleymodels.com/p/11218/30-420---Western-Pullman---Ultima-Digital-Sound-Train-Set

 

No affiliation with them, but have regularly shared some of their gems and my father is a happy customer of theirs.

I’ve bit for an A4 again. They really have strange pricing policies. I’ll get irritated if they pull the same trick twice. 

 

I already went for their one off eBay for £117 I didn't feel good about it but it was the cheapest at the time.

 

Anyhoo that Q6 is back down to £80

Cheaper at Bure Valley and they haven't annoyed me recently :)

I am in the US.  Bure Valley will not sell to me:

"As we are unable to obtain cost effective goods in transit insurance, I regret we do not ship outside the UK."

So how do other UK sellers ship to me in the US with no apparent problems?

 

The Bure Valley Railway are a relatively small operation that plough all of their profits back into the operation of the railway. They've also had a tough year for reasons completely irrelevant to this thread. Shipping outside of the UK is obviously more work for them, so if those are their terms, so be it.

They are good value especially if the 67 is of appeal. I got mine a while back for a similar price and put the 67 on eBay for £80 or 85 with the certificate and it sold within hours as I was just wanting the Coalfishes with unique numbers.

Having received the pack yesterday I have to say I'm extremely pleased with it all - especially the '67'. For around £60 - 70 I've now got an up-to-date model with all the features I need. It won't be going up for sale.

Goods in Transit insurance for UK will cost a certain amount, Goods in Transit insurance for USA/Canada will cost a lot more, for a variety of reasons.  Greater distance travelled/more likely goods go missing/are damaged, if a claim is brought in US/CA courts, damages awarded are likely to be much higher than UK.

 

A small business may not be able to afford overseas Goods In Transit cover, or they may do so little overseas business that it isn't worth the extra cost.

 

A larger UK seller with a lot of overseas customers will be able to afford overseas Goods In Transit cover, and be able to absorb the cost of the higher premiums.

 

Retailers don't have to sell outside their own country if they don't want to.

If you haven't yet had enough of 365games and purple A4s they have a single one in stock at £113 so you might actually get this one if you order it.

 

https://www.365games.co.uk/model-kits/Hornby-br-a4-class-4-6-2-walter-k-whigham-era-4-model-train

Saw that earlier too.

However id rather spend the extra £17 and support a proper model shop after trying twice to purchase from these guys only for them to keep cancelling.

Cheers I got myself a WCRC tractor, was keeping an eye on them and under £130 I thought I'd best have it given I'm keen to invest in the forthcoming/announced/they might be on with coaches

You may only find out when you need to make a claim.

All insurance companies are the same until there's a problem.

 

Mike.

Be assured insurance companies are not in it for your benefit, they are in it to make a profit for their shareholders

The loco split from the set is also being flogged off for £69:

Which is ok if you actually want a Railroad B17 in BR Green with a Unicycling Lion. I suppose there must be some West Ham fans about.

 

:jester:

I didn't bother highlighting the locomotive as the proper "full fat" version is only a little bit more if you look for it.

 

Definitely seen them in the £80 to £100 range.

I got Gilwell Park when Hattons were flogging it for 74 quid a while ago, but 69 quid for even a Railroad 4-6-0 isn't  that  bad!
