Thanks for the comments.:mrgreen: Still no word on the decoders. I am becoming angry, my LHS is not the prolem, but my favorite supplier, Walthers where it is comming from! I checked the website and it is in stock at Walthers. How long does it take them to ship it? On a brighter note, I cought some pics of a brand new (well rebuilt SP unit, but new to DMIR:mrgreen Missabe #413 with a more worn in Missabe #406 trailing. Caught them bringing a load of taconite pellets into Two Harbors with a fresh layer of snow. Winter always comes earlier in the Northwoods of Minnesota.
