    I will be looking at buying code 100 flex track and #6 switches this week. Anyone know of sorce with a fair price, the "local" (90 miles) hobby shop has the track at 3.45 a piece. I'm thinking thats a bit high.

    I'm going to need cork rodabed too.

    That would be the high end but not out of line.

    You can get it for less through the big mail order/online stores but don't forget the shipping cost. Of course if you have to make a 180 mile round trip, you have to factor that in too.

    ...Plus the local sales tax if applicable.

    Here in New York, sometimes it makes more sense for me to buy mail-order than to buy local because of the 8.25% sales tax. So if I'm buying $200 worth of stuff, I'd rather buy on-line from a vendor out-of-state and pay $8 shipping, rather than $16.50 in sales tax. :cool:

    ok. idk a good price, but as for the cork roadbed, you may be able to get for cheap at a craft store. i went to one today for some paints and some some for like $2- i dont remember how much of cork was in it.
