Whooo! Yeah baby, that a-train's coming... Better get some baby oil!
All Train Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Might give this game a go. Gonna wait until tonight to see if they upload a worthwhile bundle that also includes a $2 store discount first though...
Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe is horrible. You start to play it and when you look at the clock it is 4am :o
I also recommend Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe. I got the original one bundled in with Roller Coaster Tycoon. I was thrilled when I discovered the open source version. It also had Railroad Tycoon II in the set but I never really played it
I recently bought A-Train 9 v4.0 in the steam sale, cracking game providing you have the patience for a cruel learning curve. Transport Tycoon Deluxe was my most favourite PC game of all time back in the day......then graphics developed into some impressive 3D and transverse M morphs and diverse gaming. Oh I could rattle on all night..........
Wanted to see the history ot ttd as I really really like Sid Meier as also loved Civilisation on the amiga .. Pirates less so... But he also had a game like a 2d version of splinter cell too where you would go around infiltrating embassies! So many memories! Hope my son is similarly happy playing mimecraft! Mind I was on a spectrum at his age (8) so not quite into simulations and military conquest yet! Anyhow. These guys said they hated tycoons but loved ttd so will have to try it when I retire and get some free time! https://www.reddit.com/r/tycoon/comments/pdqdq/battle_of_the_titans_railroad_tycoon_1_vs_2_vs_3/?utm_source=amp&utm_medium=comment_list
i got the train set but the quality is disappointing (not the table, can't comment on it)
Great find. Thanks OP.
And gone again!
Back in stock!
Aye! Makes ‘em much worse :-p
I get your point but he said "70% off RRP" as.opposed to "70% of RRP" what a difference an F makes to those sums, if the statement is fact of course..
Umm, 70% of RRP? Then profit at 50% off....let’s take a £100 item....that’s £16.67 VAT...leaving retail price of £83.33 ex VAT....70% of that is £58.33....cost....I’ll leave the reader to calculate the VAT on this sell price and understand the losses involved
What else did you a shout part of that package?
If your going to York as part of the trip like we did last week then get the York pass, cost £55 each with discount and we managed to get £160 worth of attractions each including this brilliant experience to whitby
It's fab, well recommended. Drink!
Do you get a steam train or just a regular one?
I did based it on two people and I'd check the accommodation as sometimes you may end up paying the same price for a single person in a double room. If you don't mind hostels you may get better deals.
Usually these prices are for a pair, but try the above links by putting one person and check what prices comes up? Let us know... I would be interested. £200 for a week is a bargain esp in summer time
Can you book for just one person at £199.99 or does it have to be for 2 people at £399.99? (y)
Wow now this is tempting
Budapest and Prague were really good, weather is good at that time of the year too
I have found the Wi-Fi to not be that good :/
Well I didn't mean it to be taken literally (flirt)
Not necessarily true. If you know when you're going, you can get a 1st class ticket from Edinburgh to London for £40. Also some of the rail discount cards will give you good deals.
I think it does, wifi worked fine for me when I travelled in first class, but when I'm in standard the wifi sometimes won't even work for me until about half an hour out of Euston, and even then keeps cutting out.
Will go nicely with your overpriced cup of tea and wilted ham sandwich from on board 'catering'
Worth putting a strip of sellotape over the speaker. Brings the sound down to bearable. Once that is done everyone can enjoy it ;)
How do you get the 20% discount using the toysrus gold card?
great value, well done OP we have this set and our kids love it. Nice quality toy
Does it work in argos then?
Hot. Thank You, just ordered from Newry store.
Same price as Smyths and John Lewis?
My daughter enjoys it but the quality is questionable. The middle of the table flexes a lot as it has no support and is just hardboard. I added a solid base to fix it and its pretty good now. The track is also relatively poor quality with the odd splinter and feels a lot cheaper than the other wooden track we had.
These have always been at this price on studio since they’ve stocked them... well over a year ago..
If they've got a million quid going spare they'd be better putting it towards actually getting the trains running on time and not just cancelling stops when they're running late.
BOGOF if you present a valid train ticket :)
It's lovely that they have restored this place. I remember it from when I lived in Brighton in the 90's. It's quite lovely. Top post. (popcorn)
I know it's free but please put donation in, visited recently and we all had a great time and yes got too see the really small re-entry capsule that Tim Peak was in...... They do have some VR rides but you have to book these as we found out..... Compared to the Jorvik Center it's a good few hours and lots to see and discuss with the kids.... PS not a deal but the York Dungeon was really good fun...
The wife and I took the kids at half term as we had both not been since school trips about 25 years ago or so. All 4 of us enjoyed it. Paid the £10 parking and then gave £5 as we walked in. In our eyes they are getting £15 straight up there. Then we all went on the little train ride which was about £10 I think and then as we were there so long we purchased the £20 family meal deal to have some lunch. Then a couple of bits in the shop. All in all £50+ spent there. There was no turnstile the lady explained Tim Peakes landing pod or whatever was there along with some other stuff going off and said we suggest a £5 per person donation. She asked if we needed parking and so paid the £10 to get the token and we put £5 in the tub and she said thanks and off we went. As a lot of people have already said if no one donated anything these places just shut down. We have an extremely popular massive park with near us that has a 'voluntary' £1 parking. I see people looking at us like WTF are you doing paying that £1???!?! Well when they start charging a forced £3 or close the place down then I can come back to you and explain why I pay my £1
Everybody has a case for the government giving money to this that and the other. Just remember it's all of uses money that the government doles out and if everything that people want the government to fund was fulfilled then your already to much taxes would be even higher. It's much better if people donated to their own individual projects.
Yes,last time was last year,half an hour before closing when we were just going to have a quick look between trains.It's not a turn style as such but barriers that funnel you through the entrance point. Here they try and plead for donations,and they were doing it to the people in front for the sake of half an hour's viewing.So we changed our minds and went back to the train station!
It is a wonderful museum, but one penny-pinching thing is bloody annoying. Each locomotive had an explanation board explaining why it was important, and these these have pretty much gone. It feels more like an art gallery for people who like engineering than a museum explaining things.
Same price as prime at Asda direct, Argos and Smyths.
This is available all year round in case anyone is feeling they need to rush to get this as an offer.
Don't strictly have to travel by train. As long as you have a valid train ticket - from one stop away usually does the job and doesn't cost much ;)
Thanks for sharing op....
Already closed down all near me
I was applying for jobs up here, and getting interviews too. I’d just left uni, and could have moved at a couple of days notice to almost anywhere in the country - couple of suitcases and I’d have been there. I had no ties then. I’ve been a tax payer since 1987, even during the 6 years I was at college / uni. I’ve funded plenty - so have no issues with taxpayers having funded my train fares. Could I do it now? No, I’ve 2 young children, I’m recently widowed, so the upheaval would be impossible now. And I wouldn’t need anyone to fund trainfares.
Don't suppose there were any companies near you to get practice on? I understand the point and the incentive of this scheme and it's good to get people into work, but if you have no means of paying for a train, how would you pay to relocate your entire life to another part of the UK? What I will say is that why on earth aren't these interview costs being absorbed by the hiring companies or the recruitment agencies? The companies hiring who can afford to hire someone from the other side of the country and can't find anyone local then they can absolutely afford to pay a train fare (generally - they may not want to but that's another matter) and if it's through an agency then their commission of 3 to 6 months could also go towards paying it. Not really sure why tax payers should be funding it...
Unemployed folk deserve every opportunity given to them as they are all clearly desperate to get into work and start giving back. What a great idea this train thing is. Hot deal.
Attend every week must be a nightmare, oh wait, i remember back in 2014 when i was unemployed. They had me go in every day. After a week or two even the advisors couldnt be bothered and just had me show up, sign and go. Never understood the purpose of it. I was told i had to do it for 3 months. Luckily for me, back then i lived within 10 mins of my local job centre so had no problems attending without the need of transport. Really wished i completed the 3 months just to find out what they would have had lined up for me next. However, I ended up finding a job 2-3 weeks before the 3 months were up lol.
You sound like you've given up on him in a way?! "if he ever gets another interview?!" Do you think so little of him/his skills in the marketplace that you are not even sure he'll get another interview?
I picked up new Shield Hellicarier for £202 today.
Code is expired.
I don't have kids (or a wife for that matter) but having kids would certainly make it easier to justify buying legos. Do it for the children!
Awesome price, ensure to buy two so you can have a more realistic, longer train as there’s plenty of bits to build 99% of two centre carriages....then use the spare power functions for your Xmas trains!! And enjoy the extra track
oh i really want this (for my son) but we dont have room :(
lots of good reductions at Asda on Lego
Agreed OOS - will expire, hope it helped someone.
definitely gone for me. sad times. i was hoping amazon would auto price match, no such luck.
It looks ok to buy for me (I haven't actually bought it yet...) in S London. Have you tried delivery as well as C&C?
Out of stock already :(
