Looking for a bargain train set

Hello, I'm looking for a cheap train set for my son. Searching on here found a deal from Sainsburys for a Hornby Thomas passenger and goods train set for £35 but everywhere has sold out. Does anybody know of any good deals at the moment for a similar train set? Thanks.


Not Thomas (it's over £50 on this site) but a decent enough starter is the Harry the Hauler set by Bachmann from Hattons (a truly excellent seller of model railway items) here hattons.co.uk/sto…=15 for £38 plus £4 delivery.


Harry the Hauler complete starter train set
Train set contains:[LIST]
[*]'Harry' diesel locomotive
[*]Salt wagon "Saxa Salt"
[*]7-plank wagon "Sheepbridge"
[*]Brake van in BR brown
[*]Circle of track
[*]Transformer and controller[/LIST]Track is fully compatible with other OO scale, such as Hornby and Peco (code 100).

The Thomas set is £57 and is here hattons.co.uk/sto…=44 (about half way down the page)


It's more, but you get more track and a mat to put it on too.

Ikea used to do a really good cheap wooden set as well?

Cheers guys for the help so far. Ideally i'm after a Hornby/lima style electric OO gauge railway as he's outgrown the wooden sets:thumbsup:
