Ed's Hobby's, the service can be terrible, but the stock it just incredible. You can buy use or new engines for a deal, they have 3 Big Boys and an entire industrial shelve of Athearn freight cars. And Acela engines. I also recommend Pat's hobbies, that's where I got my F40PH set from, they have N scale too.
