Hornby Southern Star Train Set HALF PRICE
was £119.9 now only £59.99 @ Argos
I got a similar set to this last year (Midland Flyer) to form the basis of a layout I built my son for Christmas.
Hornby Southern Star Train Set.
Southern Star Train Set is fantastic value and comes with an 0-4-0 steam locomotive, assorted wagons, trackside accessories; an oval of track with siding, train controller and trakmat .
It is brilliant value for the beginner or someone looking to add to their existing train set. .
It doesn't mention it, but this includes Track Pack A, hence the siding.
Suitable for ages 5 years and over.
If like me you'd like to build on this, and would prefer to design your own layout, rather than use the included Trak-Mat, then I can highly recommend AnyRail (demo available) which includes a database of Hornby track sections, so it essentially provides you with a shopping list of additional track sections to buy.However, for ease of use, and a great layout which can be built up in stages using Trak Packs (spreading the cost!), I have to admit the Trak-Mat is a fantastic idea.
