    I'm looking for a good place to get Atlas flex track and Midwest cork for N scale online. I know I ran across a thread once that suggested some inexpensive vendors, but I've lost that. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Hi all,

    I found Standard Hobbies. com to be the cheapest with Atlas flex track by far.

    What's the URL for standard hobbies? I Googled it and got some sort of shopping search engine. It did have some model train sites, but most of them were like ebay and Amazon.com and a few other online hobby shops. Most of the rest of the sites it came up with had nothing to do with hobbies, trains, models or anything at all helpful. :confused:

    Looks like www.standardhobby.com

    Thanks for the feedback folks... it's been a while since I posted the original question but I still haven't bought my needed track and roadbed to complete my layout. It's been a busy summer :)

    Just so you are careful, Standard Hobby has the best pricing for those things that are mentioned here, but there are other sites that have great pricing and selection on a lot of other stuff. I don't thing anyone buys everything they need from just one dealer.

    The only online model RR orders I have placed have been with Rusty Stumps Scale Models.
    www.rustystumps.com

    They have some great laser cut detail parts for N Scale.

    Hi all,

    I agree with EasyDays one hundred percent. All I buy from Standard Hobby is my track and switches. There are many other great on line hobby stores out there to fill our needs.

    Thanks Dav. I've added it to the Hobby Shop page of my links pages. I always like to add new sites to keep them as up-to-date and as useful as possable. :thumb:
