Hello everyone!
This year my grandpa got me my first bachmann train-the chattanooga-and it is remarkable! Does anyone,however,know of any places to buy thomas products cheap? I only have 150.00 and plan on only getting Thomas,James,Percy,a few more cars and coaches(preferably Gordons and Thomas')and some more track to make only a small layout.Thank You in advanced! Grin

Where do you live? That would make a big difference.

Try Hobbylinc they have reasonable prices, that's where I buy my Thomas models from.

I'd also recommend Model Train Stuff too as MetaDude27 said above.

I buy mostly from Hobbylinc because they seem to to have the best prices.

But I did buy my Knapford Station from Phil's hobby because their price can't be beat - for that one item (the rest is higher than Hobbylinc)
