Hi all,

I think I'm finally at the stage where I can buy a loco.  I don't really have any specific requirement other than that I want it to be DCC ready or DCC fitted.  I'm looking for a physical shop that has a good range for me to browse.

Any ideas?  I'm prepared to travel if there's a marked difference in the range.

Many thanks in advance.
