Anyone have experiece with this e-tailer? Are they reputable?

They seem to indicate some older runs of HO Atlas ACF cylindrical hoppers available that I can't really find anywhere else.

I've used them once many months ago.  Received my purchase in a reasonabloe amont of time (don't even remeber what I ordered now).  You could try them once and if their service sucksl don't use them again.

I've bought a fair amount of N scale stuff from them.  They used to have some pretty good clearance sale prices.

I've used them as well with no problems.  I would also suggest Modeltrainstuff.com.  I've made several purchases from them and that are way cheaper than you LHS.

It has been 4-5 years since I used them but I was always very happy with their service.  Price and other minor factors caused me to go different directions vendor wise.  As I recall they had a lot of older new stock at very good prices.  When my inventory got caught up they were not as appealing.
