Rails Have the 2008 Hornby Catolgue on the website for £8

Is it me or is it getting rather expensive to buy now days. That's without P&P or you can pop down to your local model shop and pick it up.

£8 is a lot considering you get the Bachmann one as part of your collectors club membership for £18. The Hornby membership is now £35 I believe but includes the Loco. Considering the difference oin price between the Loco and Wagon Bachmann seem to offer the better value.

Is £8 pushing it over the limit for casual buys?

I totally agree that catalogues should be free... I swear, it's the most twisted thing - now we're paying to be advertised

That's true... but the Walthers Catalogue which is like the mother of all model railway catalogues is only 9.95 USD. Somehow I don't think Hornby's catalogue is so extraordinary as to explain the price hikes.

And if each manufacturer starts charging equivalent amounts, we'll be soon have to set aside the amount of a train loc just to make sure we're up to date catalogue wise... rather ridiculous!
