Thank you.Olivia's Trains has a pair of power cars for £290 - which is anywhere from £10 to £30 more expensive than what they go for/have been going for elsewhere, and is the RRP for the models.
Beware on eBay: prices have soared through lockdown and are rarely representative of the value of the actual model. Seeing as the model's no longer made by Hornby, your best bet is waiting around on eBay.
You're welcome.Thank you.
It's strange really. All the coaches have been released now, but you can't get anything to pull them!
And this is probably the case because they're charging the RRP, when many shops sold them for less.Like Peter said Olivia's Trains and also Rainbow Railways have them at £290 which seem to be the only shops that have them now.
As well as the above mentioned firms, have you tried Hattons in Merseyside?
I was going to ask what exhaust deflectors are but a quick google search finds this thread you made 8.5 years ago on the RMWebThey sold out long ago so would only have the occasional second-hand set.
Hornby have done two runs of the power cars - one years back with slam-door coaches, and more recently another set of power cars and two sets of sliding-door coaches- the coaches left mostly seem to be standard class ones - presumably because people don't mostly want a full 7-car set.
The first set of power cars had the exhaust deflectors. The second set doesn't - this is correct as they were removed from the real power cars in the intervening period.
