Found 15th Dec 2010
Look to be some good train set deals in the 'clearance' sale section at play - from £44.99 upwards with free delivery and possibility of quidco etc I guess
Flying scotsmans at £74.99 next cheapest I can see is £121 at Google shopping comparison.

It seems to me that every Hornby train set can be found at half price somewhere on the net if you look hard enough and that the sets are vastly overpriced to begin with.

Yes probably fair comment - and the extras seems expensive too - however.... for the kits on sale at Play at first inspection they all seem to be chepaest currently available (although I think I did find a price match on the night mail one)

I bought the Flying Scotsman set to be put away until my son is just the right age. These prices from Play are very good. With inflation taking off in the UK and China, and the pound heading down the toilet, I can't see these getting any cheaper; in fact, I'll wager these sets will be costing £200 soon. I hate model trains and refuse to read boring Thomas stories, but a train set is one of the rites of passage: I can remember appreciating the status of this set, which only the middle-class boys at school had, 35 years ago, though I thought them boring even then.

Just picked up the new javelin set for £59.99. My son has wanted i since it came out and at this price its a steal.

Thanks!

Just a warning, I ordered one from ELC which is delivering direct from the manufacturer, ie Hornby, Not sure if play deliver from the manufacturer but if they do they have a backlog of orders and mine still hasnt arrived and was ordered on the 8th, so you may not get a delivery this side of Christmas with more bad weather forecast.

Thanks
