Yep, I called San-Val to confirm and it's true. I went ahead and ordered one each of the new Spectrum cars from Bachmann. I figure I might as well get in on the deals while they last! It's a shame but the gentleman at San-Val said the owner was getting old and wanted to retire which I can understand./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/satisfied.gif
Does this mean this weekend or what? It might behoove us to get out there. The blog says "at or below cost". The Bachmann Spectrum stuff won't last long!/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crazy.gif
I will not say a negative word..... Other than I do feel badly about it. As many of you know I have had an on and off again relationship with Al. At the moment is has been on again so I do feel badly about it. Golly first the Weiner factory gets forced out of business now this! Bummer!
Well, that really sucks. I, for one have had no issues with Al, and he's been a good supplier of stuff that's allowed me to play in this hobby. Phooey. Hope its just "gettin' too old to want to play anymore..."
OH NO! I'm really sorry to hear this. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/shocked.gif
I purchased a great deal of my USA Trains stuff from them and from Al on ebay. The Crane River Railroad will miss them greatly!/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif
Wow, that's a shock! I too, liked to go there when we were down south. I must admit though, I never really bought big ticket items there. Usually picked up some details that I didn't want to wait for and maybe some paint supplies. Also liked that they always had a nice supply of HLW items which I did seem to walk out with one or two of most times.
Vic, I have the contact info for David(owner of Trackside) somewhere. I'll find it for you if you want.
