Sales!!

#1

Post by bulleidboy » Sun Jan 13, 2019 12:18 pm

Do you remember when Hornby released Princess Class - Sir William Stanier in November 2017, there was a lot of fuss about how few they had made, and people not being able to get hold of it. So they did a second production run sometime later to satisfy disappointed customers. I received an email this morning from MRD reminding me their sale ends at midnight on Monday 14th January. I had a quick flick through the sales items, and they have forty, yes forty Sir William Staniers in stock, with a £60 price reduction on RRP. It must be a bargain - if you want one?

If only I hadn’t just paid for my tickets to Barcelona!

I think their sale ends today as well.

Far from it but if I spend any more this month it’s quite likely I’ll be found in a shallow grave in the woods. :D

Sale ends at midnight on Monday (14th) - they now have thirty nine left - £204.99 down to £143.45.

I paid £161.50 for mine in November 2017.

That is often the case. Just means they have none in their warehouse as they have all been dispatched to the retailers.
