    On the Gateway NMRA site ther are lots of pictures of "Bachmann "Spectrum" building kits. I have never seeen these and can't find anything online about them. Does anyone know where I can find more info on them or purchase them? Here is one:mhttp://www.gatewaynmra.org/mhslayout/mhs-hotel.htm

    By the way this is a great site with lots of great structures and I thank the person who sent it to me in the track planning thread.

    That kit is out of production, and is probably out of stock everywhere. It is an $80.00 kit, and there is a remote possibility that your local hobby shop may be able to get one through Trost Hobby in Chicago. If they still have one it'll cost.

    Well I don't just mean that hotel, I mean all the Bachmann Spectrum kits. Are they all out of production?

    To the best of my knowlege, all the Bachmann Spectrum kits are out of production. They are not listed in walthers with the other bachmann products, and indicate "sold Out" on Walther's website. The bachmann site does not mention the "spectrum" series structures, so it seems the product line has been dropped.

    They come up on Ebay from time to time, but as already said, not cheap

    Keep a eye open at train shows and yard sales that advertise "toy train stuff".

    While at train shows look for use buildings and goodies the dealers stuff under the front of the table which is usually low priced. :D
