I bought an Atlas Trainman set because I was curious about TrueTrack, plus it was probably about half of what they normally go for. I paid $95 (almost 75) for it including shipping, which really isn't bad if you consider the loco probably goes for about $70 and the five cars for about $15 each at least.


Also picked up these ICG cars for about $38 shipping included, so less than $10 a car.

Two items to add to my collection, both new:



Con-Cor dummy #0001-004488 RDC-1 in Great Northern livery. I now own 3 RDC-1s which will form the backbone of off-peak travel on the layout.
Intermountain 67044-08 3-bay Cotton Belt hopper

My Kato 156-0818 SP business car "SSW Cottonland" arrived from Hobby Search in Japan.



I'm unconcerned about Rapido couplings fitted to the model because two of my locos and a RDC-1 railcar are fitted with them.

I wasn't hit by Royal Mail's customs charges and it arrived well packed and safe. However their service was excellent, but it'll be rare that I order from overseas suppliers unless it's an item I'm interested in and is otherwise unavailable in the UK.
