    Ok you N guagers:

    Here's a question for you all. IS there a Rock Island Line N guage train set on the market? I would like a small one in my bedroom.

    Found the following on the LifeLike internet store page at this URL


    American Workhorse N-Scale Nickel Silver Train Set - - - Was $39.99!

    Stock number 407533 Sale price $35.99
    good through July 31, 2001.

    Road Name: Rock Island

    All-wheel drive N EMD GP-18 Locomotive with working headlights and 3 multi-colored cars
    Hand-crafted trees, rural chapel building kit, and Police Station building kit
    Signs and utility poles.


    It does not state whether track or power pack are included. My feeling is that at this price these items are not included.

    The picture on the box shows a power supply (it's blue). I bought a Dispatcher's Choice a while back, and it came with the same little power supply...

    Gee, Andy - that older RI RS-3 sure is cute ....

    ...but I better let YOU buy it - my wife might kill me if I switched to N-scale now after all the HO RI stuff I've bought !!!

    Besides ... I've always thought of the RI as bigger than life - and definitely bigger than N-scale !!!


    Sorry, N-scalers - I know you are in your own "little" world !

    Who is glad they didn't make a IMRL in N-scale, or he might be in BIG trouble over a LITTLE loco !

    Thank you everyone for your help. Jessica and I are moving next June. Almost 1000 miles! So, my train buying days are pretty much over. The only way I would buy something is if is a limited edition or on sale.

    Thanks again for the info,

    It does come with the power pck and track plus you get telephone poles and street signs,a 30x20" oval, two buildings,trees and the GP18.

    I have the GP18 that comes with the set,I dont think it has a RI caboose.I dont think Life-Like has one.
