Found this on Monday, but didnt want to post it just incase it was a miss price and they did not send it out. However I happy to say that I have recieved mine, this is a fantastic price for this item, as the cheapest i have found it previously was £120 on ebay. I am sorry but this is my first time at posting a deal and i dont know how to attach the links etc, so if anyone could add them on for me that would be great. :)

Many thanks,

bump i want to know if its digital as well.
keli? :)

My finger is hovering over the order button ;-)

I don't think it is Digital,

I zoomed in on the littlewoods website and could see the non digital controller and the DCC ready symbol, so unless it's an old picture and they are shipping new product I doubt it's digital,

i dont believe it is the digital one, i havent checked to be honest it was something we were going to set up tonight,
#12
this IS a digital set. i got the same deal last week. a very good price for this set, my nearest model shop sells it for £150.
#13
The digital pendolino box looks like this:

#14
Is it definitely digital then? I don't want the regular one.
#15
they got the same picture at toys r us read the description

http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Product.aspx/TruOrFindUsing/TruAZOfBrands/TruToysCarsTrucksTrainsModelTrainSets/011096

also i cant find anywhere that is selling this trainset non digital ?
#16
keli - can you confirm is the Littlewoodsdirect one you got is digital or not???:whistling:
#17
I'm sure this has to be the digital pendolino - hornby dont produce a non digital set, only the digital one (R1076)

Are u certain though as the picture on the littlewoods direct site looks like a non digital set and u never know it could be old stock (therefore a non digital set version). :? :? :?

From my knowledge hornby have never produced a non digital pendolino "set" - they have only produced non digital pendolinos on their own (ie no track, controller etc.)
#20
ok maybe thats correct but why the different picture to the digital set. :?
#21
keli can you confirm for certain if the set u got is digital?

thanks
#22
I've taken the punt as the price is good - the Littlewoods box does state it is "Digital Ready" but shows the standard power block as others have said. I'm crossing fingers it is digital - if it is then Christmas is sorted!!!

I wonder if these are exclusive to Littlewoods - I know Argos have exclusive sets made for them.
#23
Well, I've hit the send button, I just hope it's the digi one!!!

Fantastic deal!!!

Thank you!!
#24
When mine was delivered,the postman threw it sideways into a ditch............he said it felt more at home like that

#27

Doh! you beat me to it!

Be very careful if you use this train on a track with points on it....
#29
ok from what I can work out if this set is not DCC it's either
set R2467X which has DCC fitted
or R2467 which can have DCC fitted.
I did a quick search and have seen R2467 for about £80 and £96 for the R2467X . So with the money off as a new customer its still not bad, although some site sta they are discontinued.
The best one is the R1076

The two sets you quote are just the train packs i.e no track power etc. not a train set as per description.
i just checked my order and it says Pendolino DCC so i say its looking good :)

All my order confirmation states is "Pendolino" train set UR2131N*

Could have been made for Littlewoods, as Hornby do do special runs for people. Much like the M&S Christmas set each year.

How long until there are none in stock and lots on eBay I wonder....

Dont forget to use the £10 off voucher, and 6% Quidco!

Just used the zoom feature on the littlewoods page and it looks like there is a variable transformer (to control the speed) included in the box. This is what I got with my one and only trainset when I was a kid. I would have thought that digital trains do the whole control thing digitally. All the other digital trains sets I've looked at make a big thing about being digital - not a single mention on this box.
It does look like Hornby make special editions for companys - Littlewoods have another 3 discounted trains but none of them exist on Hornbys web site.
What I'm trying to say is that the Littlewoods Pendolino set is probably not digital as it was made specifically for them to sell at a huge profit...
