    I'm a newbie and have an 027 three-rail train set that I'm just starting to set up. I want to buy some additional track so I can make a larger layout. My local hobby shop wants $47.00 for an 027 remote control switch (27 inch left or right hand). I searched on the internet and found the same switch selling for $19.00. Both are brand new and made by Lionel. Is there really that much of a price difference between retail stores and the internet? The internet website will add $8.00 for shipping and handling but even so, it's a lot cheaper. Or is there something else I'm not taking into consideration if i buy through the internet? Do most all of you buy your train supplies from the internet?

    You might mention the price you found on the net. You have to do it with some grace however.

    I bought a lot of MTH track last year and worked a deal out with them.

    If it's like my local O scale guys. They just don't keep up with price changes.

    I will admit however that that this shouldn't be a problem with track.
