pounstretcher and the like tend to vary between stores and don't tend to sell online due to the low price points. I would suggest checking your local store to see if they stock them (call ahead maybe?)

The Works has a great book on sale for £7.00 at the moment, "Remembering Steam" by Paul Hurley and Phil Braithwaite. The bool has some great colour photographs of the last days of steam showing some inspiration for weathering.

Naughty Rails are having a Bachmann clear out. Some cracking bargains on there. I'm £305 lighter now for 4 new tender locos. Can't say no to that!

Don't the rules state that the wonderful booty obtained at bargain rates has to be listed?

(I won't be tempted because it's the Oxford N7 in BR black that suits me.)

Does it?
Anyway I got an LNER liveried O4 and lined LNER K3, an LMS liveried 3F and 4F. Postage counted for £7.50 which was a bit of a supprise. I expected it to be a flat £4 like Hattons, but theirs goes up when the quantity does.

Not seen much mention if any of Topcashback here - works on the web site referral system the same as adverts and you get a percentage back of your purchase from any web site, subject to certain limitations such as a maximum on the monies refunded and use of discount codes on the web site, linked through Topcashback (I presume they keep a slice as there are no catches involved). Model railway wise seems pretty limited but you do normally get 1.01% back on ebay purchases (sometimes at weekends its higher) and when you decide its time for a payout you can get a further credit on various e-gift cards (i.e. my accumulated £8.98 turned into a £9.52 M&S e-gift card) If you join by this link https://www.topcashback.co.uk/ref/mike_p before 10am next Monday you should receive a £5 virtual prepaid Mastercard when you have accumulated £10
