Thanks, Pete! Trainworld was one of my favorite suppliers before the Internet, and I'd totally lost track of them.

But $40 for LL GP20 UP #474? Only bad deal I saw. I bought a lot of them for $15 when Model Expo got out of the train business. Now, if I could only find them.

Athearn 
2-6-0 at $40.00 worth the money?  Can someone comment on DCC conversion friendlyness?  I'm certain that I can search for old information although the state if the art can change almost daily with every new micro decoder release. 

If this is a reasonable DCC candidate, then I have to search for some MDC Overton cars that I show in inventory but, have not actually laid eyes on in several years...

I just got the Trainworld flyer. There are some good deals to be had ....

...and I always hated their website.  When did they do the upgrade?  I hated it so much I bet I haven't gone there in 4 years.  :facepalm:

Yes, but 15 is like getting blue chip stocks during the flash crash and not likely to occur twice. :-X

I usually get their flyers through email and then call them to place the order.  Much easier that way, and it is also amusing to speak with the native New Yorkers!   ;)  So I don't know when they upgraded their website but I think it was a while back.
