Free Shipping, etc.

Free shipping, new announcements, new in stock etc.
Posted by: Dave Cool

Hi Kids,

Here's another Free Shipping deal, this time from now until the end of May 27th. The same rules apply, i.e.

1. The complete order(s) must be from stock (no backorders).

2. Each order must be a minimum of $150 (Ontario and Quebec) or $200 (rest of Canada) before taxes.

Quantities in stock can be seen in listings by category or manufacturer, but not in the detailed product pages. The shipping will show at checkout but I will remove it from your order confirmation. If you prefer you can email your order.

The May releases from Athearn and InterMountain have just been posted. This month's Atlas announcements did not have much Canadian content (BC Rail Dash 8-40B in HO and ACR "Trainman" 42' gondola in N). I have not yet put these in the store catalogue. The HO GP40-2(W) has been pushed back again, this time its August.

Both new sound decoders from Digitrax are now in stock - finally - and are selling for $43.27 each. In fact, another four sound/motor decoders have just been announced - they will be uploaded to the store very soon. Watch for them under New Products. The popular DH123D and DZ123 are back in stock also.

ExactRail has announced a Thrall 3564 cu.ft. mill gondola, which will be available for order on May 25th. See details on their home page. If you are interested in ordering any, please let me know between now and then.

Peco is now more easily available and prices keep improving.

From Rapido the regular HO lighting kits are back in stock, as are the telephone poles. Order deadlines are approaching for HO CP Engineering Services, New Brunswick Southern and Essex Terminal cabeese; ACR and ONR steam generator cars; plus a bunch of passenger cars. All these are still available in the store for pre-order, at our usual list -17.5%.

Just a reminder that we have three of the TrueLine Trains CN U2g 4-8-4 "Northern" steam locomotives available for purchase. They are currently at TrueLine for refurbishment to fix quality and design issues.

Added to New Products recently were several Walthers passenger and freight car announcements. Sort on "Model" and scroll down to "932" prefix.

The store exchange rate currently remains at 1.05.

Have a great week and "Go Habs, Go",
