I was in Omaha, Neb. today and stoped at one of the train hobby shops. The owner said that there will more than likely be a considerable price increase in all G-scale items this fall. The overseas workers are figuring out they need and want more money for wages. You may want to get some of the "want items" that are on your list this summer before we get hit with a big price increase. Hopefully not like the one we got with TRACK!! He sounded pretty sure of this happening. Just thought I would pass this along, it could save you some big dollars.
