1:32, 1:29, Aster, Accucraft, USAT, and there are others....

"good price" is relative... $20,000 for an Aster would be a good price...

pick the manufacturer, but the most prevalent are the 1:29 USAT ones in my opinion...

at these prices (about 2.7k for the USAT) you should be sure of the model you are getting.

Do you also realize the broad curves and quality of trackage necessary to run or will this be for display?

I think 1/32, 1/29, 10mm to the foot, are normally refered to as gauge 1. Whereas the OP is specifically asking about G scale - ie 1/19, 1/20.3, 1/22.5, 1/24 - so the short answer to his question is - there ain't no such thing - at least not to my limited knowledge .... :)

I just hope the OP realizes that - even though the trains we're talking about all run on a common gauge of 45 mm - not all gauge 1 stock will run on G scale track because the curves can be too tight for the larger locos - and not all G scale stock will run on gauge 1 track because the flanges can hit the chairs on code 180 or even 200 rail and the larger G scale loading gauge can cause track clearance problems.
