Why cull a useful topic?

I'm sure there are many users that have benefitted from this thread

Certainly are. Just as many hands make light work, many eyes make for efficient searching.

I think the suggestion was to remove the first few pages which are no longer relevant as is done from time to time. Black friday offers from 2016 aren't much use any more! Up to the mods if it's bothering them, doesn't make much difference to most of us really, I'm sure we all just go straight to unread posts to see if there's anything interesting.

I think the whole thread should be locked!

It's costing me a ruddy fortune. :twisted:

Roger, I'm VERY MUCH in amongst that number you speak of, so, well-said.

Without THIS thread & it's back-referencing, I would never have come into ownership of my sole/single "Half-Price" Western Class.52

I hope & pray they (mod's), leave "well alone & as is".

I still use the 'back-pages' (old-hat), to keep tabs on model-stores I'm NOT familiar with,
nor wish to clutter my already overloaded bookmarks with

I know I can just dive-in here, go to certain pages & dial-up what I want..... PLUS.....

It's also a good reference source to see just how much I (& others), have paid for many of our Loco's in the fleet.

Dunno about you lot, but I seem to be 'early-onset-Alzheimers', so, ANY "one-stop" topic like this is ideal reference, to me.

Bet I'm NOT the only one who likes looking back & comparing prices of "what was" & when those offers were rife...

We do from time to time "Prune" the older pages of long running threads, but it's lower priority than the moderation task, which basically means reading everything. The tools for pruning aren't particularly efficient, meaning we have to proceed cautiously to avoid throwing out the wrong bits, ie the latest posts. There isn't a nice big undo button!

Lidl have some DIY items that may be of interest to some modellers. Heat shrink tubing for electrical insulation & hooks & eyes for the fastidious modellers who put curtains around their baseboards to hide a multitude of sins!

If anyone is thinking of going to the great Dorset Steam Fair this weekend, the Hornby tent has some real bargains while they last. K1 with 3 open wagons GBP 60, J50 GBP 40, Thomas GBP 20, Roadshow wagons GBP 2, Thomas train sets GBP 25 and various other Thomas bits very cheap. i also saw a few other locos, reduced but not to the same extent which I recall included including Schools, Kings and a B17. Some other stuff sold out during the day, so if you're going best get into the tent early :) .

Some good deals at Model Railways Direct. Hornby streamline Coronation for under £100 for example.
