A dealer bought the last stock and offers them (usually) at ECLSTS for $350-ish. You can often find a used one for $100-200 depending on condition. I paid $110 for mine at a blind auction, and found it had a decent sound card in the tender!

They run sorta well, but have plastic truck wheels and the spokes are not opened out on the drivers. Replacing truck wheels isn't difficult except that the rear truck is a big wheel and there are few replacements.

Nate - you did google "site:mylargescale.com lionel atlantic" to find out what we all already said about it, so we wouldn't have to go to the trouble of re-typing it all ? (Hint.)

Worth it. Good prices.

You can re-sell the Atlantics for $200 each pretty easily if they are in perfect condition, in fact I'll take one, need to double head them on my layout.

still says the same thing.

I unboxed she Santa Fe to have a look. The bell appears to be missing, but everything else seems fine. it might have been in the box. i didnt look. i will test it, to check if it runs okay. although my fa-1 and fb-1 was brand new, it had some problems with one power truck, but some oil fixed that.. I will see if i can get it for you,

he also has about 200 feet of brand new, never unboxed aristo brass track , i found a cardboard box sealed shut with the shipping label on it that said Polks Hobby Co.on it, and it was untouched. i cut it open, and found four cases of aristo 2' straights inside! there was like 5 other cases of track, and in the corner of the room i found another pile of track.

Yes, an entire section on cigars on my site...

you might want to state that first next time, like "my highly restricted school laptop was unable to see your site"...

Can it surf sites that talk about marijuana? Pretty funny.

Anyway, back to the subject... did you buy the locos?
