Hornby Magazine Yearbook

Hi all.

After another wasted trip to our "local" WH Smith in town, I am asking the ultimate question...

When is the Yearbook going to be in the shops?

No one in Smiths knew, and it seems that I am unable to order one from them.

Now, I do not want to miss out, but at this rate I will have spent more than the £5.00 voucher in transport fees!

I got mine from WHSmith for £6.12

I used £5 off the £16.99, £5 voucher when you spend £10 on any book and then my staff discount.

Working at WHSmith is useful for some things.

I brought the Hornby yearbook and also the British model trains 2008 book with all the reviews. Both are excellent reads and worth buying, but the BRM annual didn't look that good if you ask me, so I didn't buy it!

I dont quite know what you mean, but I hope I can help. The BRM annual and british model trains 2008 magazines are with railway moddeler and model rail in the magazine section. Where as, the Hornby yearbook is with Transport in the book section.

Hope this helps you to find it.

Hi Sarah,

I'm sorry to hear that. They can definately order it in for you and it will take less than one week. If they say they can't do that then they are liars.

Have you tried Amazon? If you cant get one there I will happily get one from our branch for you and post it to you if you like. I dont mind doing that at all.

62 year old Newbie here!

I looked at the Yearbook in WHS Wolverhampton and thought it was a £9.99 book at best !

It is overpriced at £16.99 or £15.99 I cant remember which! But anyway, Hornby magazine had a voucher saying get £5 off, so you could of got it for £12 and WHSmith are running the offer, that if you are a member of their priviledge club, which is free to join, you get free vouchers through email. One this month was spend £10 on any book and get £5 off. So altogether you would of got £10 off and paid £6 for the book.
