I saw it as well, what  really want is an afordable Bogie. Maybe next time?

It certainly looked impressive.

As for the price, well you can not have a weak currency and cheap imports.

Bachmann is the only producer in HO, Hornby is 00.

And Thomas is based on a real loco, with a face added.

Ask the dealer?

The Aristocraft C16 is in a completely different scale, they would look silly next to each other.

Mason Bogie for me.

Just wondering why price discussions are not fair?

Shouldn't the issue on this board be what is fair to the consumer?

Well its on their web site, I can only presume that either they do not want to sell very many, or B'mann were concerned about direct competition with the normal product line.

Either way pretty nasty.

OK, My Kay is ordered and prepaid. $664.99 Guess I'll just have to figure out the wiring when it gets here.

Well I live in CO, but will be back in the UK for a few weeks in November.

Sounds like I should bring a few withe, pay for the trip.

Actually cheaper to order fom San Val, no sales tax.

Just been in contact with my near-local dealer here in UK- special price of £615.00 - that's $1200.00.  Even got 455 with a green boiler...makes it very tempting.

Interestingly, she also told me that there would only be 1500 of them worldwide - anybody like to comment on that? [Ahem, that's YOU, Mr Bach-man].

My assumption would be that it will come with a variety of stacks.

Hi Stan, I have been reading your posts on the Hybrid system, and or me it seems to offer everything I want, so I am giving it a trial, parts ordered!

I do not thing thee is much difference between you and Dave, you both do not like relying on track for power distribution.

I am somewhat concerned about track pricing, you can still get AMS at just over $2ft for Code 250, Aristocraft will be twice that much and who knows when it will be in, SS 330 is even more. 250 also looks better but that is subjective.

We do have Deer around, but I think that may be a problem for both codes.

Interesting about the colour issue, real track does not look like SS or Brass for that matter, but all those years of seeing model track in NS make SS look more normal.

I would have thought the Muni color was very close. I have been to the Tram museum in CA and am familiar with GWR colours as well.

The extra sunshine in CA may well have bleached them out a bit!

Just want to make sure I have this right, I have a NCE Powercab for HO.

I could add to my battery powered LS a Gold Maxi, use the Powercab to control the loco and any additional functions, and batteries to supply the power.

Quite happy to be able to have a "power area/siding/track segment, to charge up batteries between usage, I very rairly run for more than 30 minutes at a time anyway.

My reading of the current market is that the Sierra as it currently exists will not have much opportunity going forward. Should be much better offerings at lower price points, just look at the smaller scales.

Sierra 2 or whatever is another issue.

And I did not think Sountraxx made the Bachmann decoders, I thought they just licensed the technology?

I think you may have trouble here, most Americans do not realise Football is played with a round ball, Cricket could be well outside the frame.
14  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Who has the best price on the new 3 truck shays? on: February 12, 2007, 01:56:25 AM
There are quite a few LS reputable dealers, Ridge Road, St Aubins, Trainworld etc. has a list.

I have not bought from St Aubin, but I have never had a problem from quite a few others.

Not to sure what percentage of the US population is within an easy journey of a decent LS Retailer, must be very small.

Once you are set up you can go and change it to something meaningless.
