    Hi all,
    How about some suggestions for online shopping. (Trains that is, nothing else). I have been shafted by one supplier and don't want that experience again. Any help would be appreciated. I patronize my LHS but sometimes I need things they don't carry or have in stock.

    I've ordered from M.B. Klein too and have always had good service so far.

    I am forced to do all my ordering on line - I live many miles from any hobby store. I have used several sources. M. B Klein does the fastest job of shipping. Not the cheapest, but they ship within a couple of days - some of the others take a week to 10 days to package the shipments.
    I have been to the Klein store in Baltimore (my son lives in that area). That is what got me hooked on model railroading. One of these days I want to go to Milwaukee to check out their BIG store!
    Klein has a good selection, but all of the items in their catalog don't appear on line. Great people to deal with.

    I have dealt with this online shop for about 4 years now and they are excellent to do business with and from what I have seen, the lowest prices on the web.

    I've been using First Hobby with great success. Fifer Hobby is also great.:thumb: Both have great customer service and communications. Do NOT use Internet Hobbies, they used to be good but have had a change in staff and presently have terrible customer service.:curse:

    Thanks for the info. I learned about Internet Hobbies the hard way. Never again. I waited for about a month for the first part of my order and the last part came about six weeks.
