Hornby R1248 Santa's Express Train Set, Various £48.86 @ Amazon

Posted 21st MayPosted 21st May
Shopping around for my old man's birthday present, this seems like a decent price for a Hornby set. Hopefully will be of use to someone.

I'd rather buy it from anybody other than Amazon so thanks for sharing.

The oval of track adds operational interest?

Hi, I have found an even better deal to this, however the retailer has been banned so I am unable to place an advert. The Hornby Freight Master is available @ £25 (Reduced from £60), a quick search may find it on the web.

Roger_Irrelevant

Considering this is all made in China now £99 is a lot of money for what you actually get. In particular the controller seems very poor quality. It's paper light, feels flimsy and the wires are as thick as telephone wire. Dunno if Hornby have a monopoly on this stuff but it's like they're trading on the name.

Gutted, after waiting over a week had this email (annoyed)

ChelseaRae

Thank you. I got a confirmation email at 3.07pm but no emails from DPD, hoping it just means there was an influx of orders between!

merlinthehappypig

Ordered at 8.30am on the 25th. Confirmation email at 8.44am. Email yesterday from DPD saying it would be delivered Monday, but came today. I’ve not had anything since the original confirmation from the shop itself, but the DPD emails showed it was on its way. Online, my account shows it as 'awaiting shipment' still, so they obviously aren't up to date there.

LOGiCALX

Nothing new here, exactly the same as the older sets when it got the upgraded headlamp and dcc...

Mr.Nutts

It wouldn't even be a train set if a 't' was removed... It would be a Harry Potter rain set... but I appreciate that this isn't as funny as a Horny Harry train.

M0nk3h

That would be a very different train set if Hornby had the b removed.

this is ok for the beginner, but f you really want to enjoy a new big train set, get a job in the peeway, you get almost unlimited track and trains, and your play area for building is almost unlimited. lol Heat. ;)

Think that would be all Hornby sets really, they’re not designed for little hands.

I think you just need to make sure the track is put together properly and make sure you don't have it running too fast great price for this.

Great price...but some concerning reviews - sounds fiddly and temperamental.

also check the wheels and pickups on your trains as they could be dirty and stop the current flowing if you need more help: https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums is a good place to start

I dug my old train set out of my mum's loft a while ago as I thought my kids might like it. But the track seems to not conduct any more. I think I'll need to buy a new set with track - so if you know any track bargains please give me a heads up.
