    I thought I would start this thread for continuous updates of any deals that come up from time to time.
    Anyone who has a pulse on whats currently a bargain, offers, special promotions and discount codes.

    Please share any news you have here

    I will kick off with Hattons "Sale of the Century"

    Scalecast also have a sale on, 10% off NS range using code NSNOW and 20% off Lineside range using code LSNOW at the checkout

    No worries Ed, yours is specific to that offer, the intent is once peeps answer or 'mark' this thread, it will always come to the fore when they log in.

    Which will work, as long as the offer is still in existence when they log in or happen to pick up the thread :scratchchin:

    10% OFF EVERYTHING for 24 Hours! Use code FLASH in the checkout
    But check other sites prices as they may not be the cheapest even with a discount!

    Rails have something of a sale on presently, and I was almost tempted by the Bachmann trio of Crimson Birdcage coaches at £139.50 post free, but looking on the Hattons sale and finding them for £130 including postage, they got the order, for which I am now waiting. Well, I decided if I wasn't going to spend funds I'd put aside for the Elgin trip on going there, at least I'll have something to look forward to with some of the money! Almost makes me feel better already!:giggle:

    Nice one Keith ..... A little compensation for missing out on the trip. Every cloud has a silver lining. :thumbs:

    Had an email from "Rails" this morning informing me that their sale starts today.......nothing I'm looking for personally, but might be some bargains for others.

    Just had an email from "Rails" of Sheffield. Apparently they are having a clearout of Bachmann 00 gauge and Graham Farish N gauge stuff at decent prices. Nothing I'm after, but maybe bargains for some.......worth a look???

    Then again, nothing a fibre glass pen can't remove and then new decals applied ! The 3F Jinty with sound ain't a bad price ! I just wish the price on those N gauge Merchant Navy Class was for OO !! :(

    Cheers, Gary.

    I was very tempted by the Jinty, still am, but a tenner for the transfers and a load of hassle (never actually done transfers on a loco before) to save £40 (seen elsewhere for £199) is just not worth it.

    Each to his own! I will keep my eyes peeled for bargains like my last one (Class 40 with sound, £63) :thumbs:

    Is that a TTS fitted Class 40 ??

    What do you think of the sound compared to a much more expensive decoder such as a Howes or Olivia's ?? I have heard a few of the Hornby TTS decoders on steam locomotives and the 4 x beats per revolution is not in sinc, same goes for some of Bachmann Soundtraxx decoders....

    Cheers, Gary.

    To be honest, I have not taken them out of the boxes! (I bought two at that price!) I have several other TTS steam and no they don't sync properly. Not sure if you can tweak the CV's in a TTS to resolve it either! It is the short cummings of the cheaper alternative. I only have one bachmann fitted with sound and yes it is far better than the TTS. The ESU 5 has some stunning features like auto detecting load from the back EMF and altering the sound accordingly! You pays for what yous gets. The 40's are railroad, but I got two with sound cheaper than half the price of one Bachmann with sound. Not overly keen of super detailed loco's anyway!
