hott - I got this for my dad a couple of years back. Cost nearly £200 at the time. If your wondering - this isn't your standard set. The train and it's coaches are much more refined and detailed than your average Hornby loco. The train and carriages(which light up) have the kind of detail you can only see with your own eyes - fabulous. Gutted I can't get this for my dad......

Now you can! :thumbsup: It appears the 3 for 2 deal is back on from 27/10 https://www.hotukdeals.com/item/262670/woolworths-3-for-2-on-all-toys-back/ There's only the two different packs at £39.99 though, as posted by edi earlier in this thread. Note that the local freight is a smaller pack (less track, 1 less wagon, etc) The other is the Midland flyer which has a different engine to the Coastal freight/Industrial packs (Woolies does not sell The Industrial even though that is what they have pictured - its the Midland Flyer as illustrated by trebor in this thread)

Blinding deal, voted hot hot hot and loads in stock! thanks

Woolies have them listed as Train Sets without the word Hornby - I found 5, but not showing as 3 for 2. Pity as I'd have had them for the littl'un's Christmas if it had been 3 for £70ish.

Ritchie.2

The 3 for 2 offer at woolies is finished, also there was only one £40 set in the offer - the midland flyer I think so you could get three sets for £85 delivered but it would be three identical set's which would be pretty pointless.

Agreed - voting should be dispassionate as to whether it's good for You or not, simply whether it represents a good bargain or not. Some retailers are asking over £100 for this, even the cheapest I found, at Amazon, is £84.28.

montyburns56

This is £20-30 cheaper than other none-DSG shops and yet people are voting it cold? I'm sure some people vote items cold just because it's something they are not interested in or just to be vindictive!

BristolDeal

Currys also have it for £49.98, and there's a 5% code there too. Postage is £6.99, but there is 3.5% Quidco. So £52.42 (£1.19 Quidco) from PC World, and £54.47 (£1.66 Quidco) from Currys. Just an alternative option in case PC World goes out of stock or anything, as it's only £1.58 difference from Currys if they do! :) Good deal.

:x - I ordered mine last thursday - still havent received it - they havent delivered it yet. I've called them twice and they say its out for delivery and I'm still waiting! No delivery has occurred and I'm getting fed up of waiting, they have charged me for this and still havent received the goods. They cannot tell me when I should receive how stupid is that and they told me the "Expected delivery date" is only an estimate. Has anyone else had poor service from littlewoodsdirect? Maybe they are like this :lazy: but I''m getting fed up waiting for them to deliver it.

Out of stock AND now back to £170 if it comes back into stock again! :w00t:

withabix

Don't forget that REAL tilting trains will appear to tilt more on bends as there is a CANT on curves on real railways (outer rail higher than inner rail) to stop the train falling off the track on the curves, exaggerating the apparent tilt angle.

emasu

The tilt wont be very big, the actual pendolino only tilts to eight degrees so its very hard to see unless you run it at a fairly high speed and are at track level to see it do so. I have 2 of the dapol pendolino models that were produced a couple of years ago and its very hard to notice them tilting.

smashby

If you put the train down on a smooth surface, and twist the bogies (as if in a bend) it should tilt, I had a look and the is a triangle bit I think that pushes the bosy up when the bogie turns, purley manual nice neat trick though. Shame they didn't suss that on the APT in the 80s. My train is bust is kept derailing when it turned in one direction fine in the other, took the top off and found a screw had sheared holding two magnets and one of the magnets had dropped stopping the bogie turning properly. Will contact hornby as if littlewoods are out of stock then they can't replace it.

Had a look at this set on Saturday in Hamleys having decided I would buy this for my 8 year old as his first introduction to an electric train set. But at £130 decided to wait a bit and check prices. Didn't find the set all that much cheaper elsewhere until i stumbled on this site last night. And boy am i glad i did. I could not believe the set I was after was available for this price. I popped into our local ModelZone shop this morning. They had plenty of sets in stock at £119. After checking with the website they had no problem agreeing to give me the online price there and then! Very chuffed! Feel like I am beating the credit crunch! Thanks.

apreading

checked and both sets seem brand new with original wires twisted round track and tissue paper perfect around trains. Most certainly not second hand. I am gonna have to give them a test run this weekend to make sure all is ok!

mine came a few days ago. Havent unpacked it yet as it is for a birthday present (in March) but will do so asap tonight and have a good look at it!

Just for the record received mine today, great price for those lucky enough to get it. Rep given

talksr

At least you got the postage back then. But still its not very acceptable. I am really glad sites like this exist as its an excellent way to gain knowledge on companies aswell as see which ones are doing good deals. It was from this site I learned about the big problems users had with littlewoods, GUS and marshallward and because of those comments, I steered clear of those companies. Its not so much the naming and shaming of companies, as maybe wilkinson does do a good job but perhaps certain product lines they do such as toys are not very well stocked etc, but this site is a fantastic place for us to discuss our experiences and resolutions (if any) and best of all its a great place to warn people. If I had not bought a train set from here and had seen the comments posted just today, I would definately not have bought one from wilkinson plus! I have emailed them the link to this thread, so they can read through it (if they can be bothered! :-D) and take note of what we all think and maybe oneday, they will make changes to their system so that customers are more likely to keep coming back and buying from them!

Well, my bulb is on it's way and they have refunded the £2.95. Voicing disappointed at my first and last order, they couldn't give a fiddlers! For me, it is a case on the lights being on but nobodys home :whistling:

Yes well done OP just a shame we all didn't know what a awful company wilkoplus has turned out to be. It was a very good deal, I didn't know about this Toysrus thing. I wasnt interested in that, just wanted one for the family, and have been since late November when I made my first order on the more expensive set. A complete disappointment. :x
