All Hornby Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2019
Horney Highland Ramblers?
Thanks @tsed I've added the price and merchant to the thread
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
They actually have that on offer as well at a £1. Hornby Track Rubber
You can get a special abrasive rubber to clean up the rails......might be worth a tr
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.
Mumsy won't let me have Thunderbird 4 after the last incident. (:I
Thunderbird 4 is easier to swallow.
There are three new series? Brilliant! I'm going to give them a watch, just as soon as I finish my morning nibble on Thunderbird 3. (highfive)
Those that may have been watching any of the three new series from 2015 onwards. [ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtbLAxtXlWrvx1UrHF3i7PQ ] How many aged 43 are going to try to eat the vehicles?
Plenty if they can use a Kodi box. 8)
Nice little trains, and bought the Santa express, £50 at the moment from Argos a couple of years ago. Hornby, a great Chinese company.
Also were on Debenhams eBay, but can’t check at the moment
3 left for £40 + £3.49 delivery on Amazon (as stated above, sold by Debenhams)
Great price! Gutted I missed the Thomas deal from Amazon a month or so ago... but this is tempting. Long live Hornby (y) Heat OP.
£37.95 for the engine alone!
I was only looking at this on Amazon, last Thursday, and it was nearer the £65 mark on there too. Great deal. Heat added.
Great price. Looks to be £65 on Hornby website
Bargain on the Florida 500 track!
Nice one, thanks!
The 20 pack has vanished from the promo page but the is this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hot-Wheels-DXY59-Diecast-Mini/dp/B01BMW645O/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1543214277&sr=8-5π=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=hot+wheels+20&dpPl=1&dpID=519PYM3mWgL&ref=pplSrch Not sure what the difference is but the box looks different.
Back up to 74.93
Ordered thank you ! :)
You get less track with the Santa express, this set from Lidl also includes 2 short straights.
Not really a deal if you ignore the RRP, you can usually get these hornby starter sets for around £30-£40 so £50 is very steep. considering its high season you can get the Santa express for the same price and you actually get more track so cold from me. Argos
No, a bit big for that. Save £50 and use a piece of scrap paper.
Got this from Argos a few weeks ago for this price. It's a proper Hornby train set, so you're getting something better quality than the sub-£10 plastic trains that are quite common at the moment. Bear in mind - these 00 gauge locomotives are not really suitable for using directly on carpet (they can pick up debris & damage the mechanisms). We fixed our track to an MDF base board & the Christmas tree stands in the middle, on the board. laying some kind of plastic down on the floor would probably work just as well.
Ditto South West Trains.. even when paying them 3k a year...
here we go again. my asda just managed to get rid of them like 2 months ago. they were £30 on a pallet for months and not shifting. one day they all disappeared (empty pallet there, so sold no doubt). i wonder if they reduced them to £15 ??
£36.99 at argos 6 months ago. £33.99 about 8 months ago. My son was given it last Christmas from asda, was around £35. £49.99 isn't a very good price.
Pray tell how much cheaper and when?
Great price for TWO locos and the basic DCC controller plus the other bits.
Same Price on Amazon
Bruce Hornsby and the Range
Got one before they went, missed the Argos in-store one but this is delivered for the price so great
Thanks, ordered, first present sorted.
Only 6 left so be quick.
I bought this a few weeks ago I might be wrong but I think it was marginally cheaper?! Great set bt
£46-60 on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hornby-R1185-Santas-Express-Christmas/dp/B01EFWDNIY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1521061815&sr=8-2&keywords=hornby+train+santa&dpID=51W4W4PUWFL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch, brilliant at Argos price 💖
Got one today, it is a bargain for the price, I think people expect a full track layout, add £350 and you'll be there.
Got two for collection in Middleton Manchester if anyone wants the order number must be collected by Tuesday the 6th
In stock at Paisley Linwood. Ordered thanks
If anyone is finding the track layout too small, they do have their track extension packs reduced at the moment as well: http//www.argos.co.uk/search/hornby/
Worth checking in individual stores, this was marked at £30 in Asda Radcliffe the other day.
A great deal, £60+ elsewhere. A good pack for someone just getting started and a good way to buy some extra items if you already have a few sets. You can always sell those items you don't need like the controller.
It was their "Christmas special" - permanently advertised at £120 on their website, and one store in Enfield on a Tuesday, so that they could flog it at Christmas for £60 "half-price", probably now the stores are clearing the last of the Christmas stock to make room for an Easter Special of similar poor value. Good price for £30.
They had these in the Gloucester branch.
Bargain but I suspect a local "one-off?"
I haven't seen these in years!!! I miss my train set! Never seen these in Asda my entire life though!
Wow! You're Asda sells genuine Hornby Accessories! Who knew? My Dad would love one of these. Heat added.
Heat! But not so much that the models melt ;) (y)
It’s fab!! Bought it at the start of the year in the sales- my son found it under the stairs in Feb so we’ve been using it all year (lol)
£43.95 here - http://www.jadlamracingmodels.com/hornby-r1210-santas-express-christmas-train-set/
I say this ever year, but seriously get one! It looks awesome going round the Christmas tree 8) Nice price too OP!
Down to £30 now
3 years ago I got one of these free from Amazon, I placed the order but an hour later changed my mind, it was marked as not dispatched and simply clicked cancel order, then I got an email to say it had been dispatched, I contacted Amazon and they said don't worry it has been cancelled, 2 days later it arrived and I had not been charged.
