Hello all.. I have been looking at the MRR advertiser Train World located in Long island NY and found that they had a lot of great prices on some items of interest to me. Before I placed my order, I decided to goto my LHS to see if I could get a heads up on this HS before i placed an order.. My LHS said that the items in question that I was looking to purchase were impossible to be offered for the price quoted, or once they got my order with my money, the items wouldn't be in stock and the communication would be deplorable... My LHS could not touch the items in question, nor would he to keep me as a customer as well, nor should I expect him to.. He needs to Keep the lights on at his place and feed his family. MY LHS also suggested that perhaps Train World was going out of business and liquidating their stock, or some underhanded shady deals were underway with Walthers.. So the reason for this post is to get some feedback before I sink more money into this great hobby.. As you may have read in one of my previous posts, I went to the Strasburg train shop in PA, spent $600, and the counter person and help there was non- existent.. I realize that I will get zero Customer / merchant relations with a fone order or INTERNET sale, But I would like to know if My money and my order will be in safe hands. I would hope that MRR magazine would not have an advertiser that is shady. Please help me with this decision.. I happen to have made a few good financial decisions and have a few dollars to keep my hobby running. Is My LHS trying to keep my business? I'd love to keep him in the running ( I will ), but I'd love to have a back up with different choices. Thanx and God Bless..
