Quick Update

New Products, Discounts OR Free Stuff
Posted by: Dave Cool
For those of you in Southern Ontario don't forget the Cobourg show next Saturday and Kingston the following week-end.

I should have the 2012 Canadian Trackside Guide in stock within days, along with re-stocking of the most popular Bytown Railway Society books.

The remaining True Line CN 4-8-4 "Northern" u2g steam locomotives shipping are items 742-303005, 742-303008 and 742-303009. No comments or reviews were forthcoming on these so I presume everyone's very happy with them. Note also the new Vanderbilt tenders coming soon (see New Products).

The Athearn "Genesis" CN GP38-2(W) has been ordered. I had plenty to spare but they've mostly been snapped up since the deadline. A few, with and without sound, can still be pre-ordered in the Store.

I've just received my initial shipment from Builders In Scale. The "Switchmaster" switch machines are in the Store; the rest are weathering chalks, chain, shingles and many scenic detail sets. I found all these very popular when I was selling them before.

Back in stock are "North From Edmonton - The Northern Alberta Railways" (still on sale), Proto 2000 and Intermountain wheel sets, Ambroid "Proweld", Kadee couplers (still some #5 on sale for $1.95/pack), "Rails Across Canada", "Goo", the more popular Canadian Morning Sun books etc.

I'm slowly loading more NCE products into the Store and you seem to be responding (it must be the prices). I'm actually selling more NCE starter sets and throttles than Digitrax recently. I'm not stocking much yet as the distributor can usually ship to me in a few days.

That 10% deal got many of you clicking for the first time, but I didn't intend to give the free rolling stock at the same time. If you asked for the 10% and free cars I gave them, but from now on its one or the other, please.

The exchange rate used in the Store remains at 1.02.

Have a great week-end,
