Amazon are selling this Hornby R9271 00 guage Thomas and Friends passenger train set for less then half price,£64.61 instead of £139.99.
I know nothing about train sets, but I do know a good priced deal when I see one; this is one.
We have a huge Hobbycraft near us in my little part of the country and there is an ENTIRE section devoted to Thomas and Friends Hornby stuff; it's always packed with men and boys browsing, ooohing and aahhhhing over the engines and various bits of track and tree accessories.
This Hornby Thomas and Friends passenger train set comes with various engines and carriages including Annie and Clarabel (Thomas' coaches - I might not know much about train sets but I do know my Thomas characters!).
You'll get Thomas, of course, and one open wagon, a milk tanker and a cattle wagon.
Along with that it comes with a power supply unit, one train controller, two track straights, two track double straights, a 2nd RAD curve, eight track double curve 3rd RAD, a Lh point, one buffer stop (oooh I know that that is too - the rest of the track stuff is like some alien language, I hope it means something to you), one power track and a track mat; PHEW!
It's too late to have this delivered for Father's Day (which is tomorrow) if you have a grown-up Thomas Hornby fan in your household, but you could buy it, print off a picture and put it inside a card.
