Sale! (and update)

Sale, etc.
Posted by: Dave Cool

Hi Kids,

Well, I've ordered your Athearn "Genesis" GP40-2L and GP40-2W. If these are as good as the GP38-2(W) you should be happy with them. What - you missed the deadline for the special price? I ordered a few for stock so go and reserve one before you forget again and have to pay the higher price.

My first order of George Taylor Model Kits was snapped up pretty fast. I have placed an order for more and hope to have them back in stock next week. I've also got orders in for Black Cat, CNRHA, Digitrax, Highball, Kaslo and Soundtraxx.

For sound decoders I have been selling Digitrax, a few MRC and many, many Soundtraxx. I'm being asked from time to time about ESU "LokSound". After talking to their general manager at Ottawa Train Expo I am considering becoming a dealer for their products. Are you interested in buying these? Do you have an opinion on them, compared to the other manufacturers? Please leave a comment.

Talking of the Ottawa show, it was good to make it this year. For me, it was not like Railfair, sales-wise, but well worth the trip. As I have more clients in Ottawa than anywhere else, by far, it was good to talk to many of you - if only briefly. I'm sure the free shipping flyer helped for those of you new to online ordering. (I may do that at Midland, too. What do you think?)

For N scalers I have just received the Rapido "Dayniter" leg-rest coaches in CN and VIA and have a few left in stock. Email me for details.

Oh yes - the sale. Simple really. For all online orders received between now and the end of Thursday, May 23rd I'll knock 10% off all in-stock items, except those already on sale. You may order other stuff at the same time and I'll hold your order until the rest arrives (up to 30 days), if you wish me to.

Do you have any comments on these free shipping and sale events that I have from time to time? Remember, I'll never know your opinion if you don't give it. Leave a comment (but keep it clean).

That's it for now,

Have a great week-end,
