Flippin' retailers.
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:56:35 AM »
It's like they don't care.

Fancy having Farish LMS Jinty's at 74.50 with free postage. Don't they know it's just gone Christmas? Don't they know I'm self-employed?

Humph.

Put my back out this morning and the vans battery was flat, day goes from bad to worse.

Stuff 'em, that's what I say.

 :veryangry:

Oh yes, now 74.50 lighter.

 :-[

I'm so weak.

It is not only retailers who are to blame  :no:. Some forum members have a nasty habit of bringing bargains to the attention of other forumites!  ;)

Because of you I not only ended up with four US locomotives, but I then somehow got to the point of having nine Burlington Northern box cars.

The locos just looked odd running round on their own, so I had to get some stock!

Oh yes, and a caboose!




I'm so weak, it's embarrassing.

@emjaybee
Arbut, when you come down to brass tacks, I was doing you a favour. You have to admit that you now have some lovely rolling stock.  :-*

I hope you've got a spare room, 'cos if the wife finds out I'll be needing another favour!

@joe cassidy See what happens when temptation is put there?  What are the youngsters gonna say when they go to get the savings to buy Mummy a little pressie. ??? @nookfield  should have kept the information to himself - how many others will fail the test?  :worried:  :)

See, I was well behaved. You didn't see me tell everyone it was Rails, just like I haven't mentioned the prices at TMC. Some of their prices are astonishing, I suspect they may lighten my pocket mood by the end of the week.

I resisted the Hornby Bournemouth Belle first time around and, despite being informed Hattons are taking pre-orders for it, I must and will resist again. It's completely out of my modelled location which has no third rail facility but it is in the right era. Oh damn, I've just made a reason for getting one but, no, I must resist resist resist resist
