    I am looking for alist of GOOD online dealers. I can think of Red Caboose and InternetTrains, but I'm sure there's a dozen or so more. I've seen entries here on the forum, but I couldn't find a barn if I was inside of it.

    Fellow gauger Absnut put me on to, Feather river trains

    Chuck is very helpful & friendly to deal with, & for N gauge track/points, the lowest price i've found.

    No i'm not related & California is a very long way from OZ.

    :thumb: Great page!!! I added it to my "Favorites". There were two dealers missing however, Toy Train Heaven and Trainworld. The latter is by far the best of all of them.

    Hi Dick
    Thought I had Trainworld at one time, but might have gotten a broken link from them and removed them. Both have been added. Thanks. :thumb: :thumb:

    Lynn, I have had very good luck with Caboose Hobbies out of Colorado.They have an excellent inventory.
    Scale model supplies in St paul when you shop locally is about as good as it gets in the cities
    For DCC I use Loys Toys talk to Fred Standish, he's very knowledgable.

    For n scale specifically try

    Standard Hobby supply has been pretty good with me.I recently purchased an On30 BLW C-16 on a special coupon(about 1/2 price) No problems and very timely.

    others I have listed
    N scale supply
    discount trains online

    Any google search will bring up a ton of options.
    Find one that suits you by checking out thier sites usability and inventory.
    Caboose Hobbies i have found to be a top inventoried shop with excellant service including follow up to insure your satisfaction.
    They beat Duluths shop hands down in every category from friendliness to price from availabilty to complete performance.
    They are the real deal and get the bulk of my online hobby shop purchases.In fact, they get far more than my LHS (70 miles away). Why, because they are simply the best ive found!!
