Menard's had a special on Model Power HO Train sets for $40.00 about a month ago. Even though I wasn't familiar with the brand I figured, "What the heck, it's $40.00" and got one for my daughter as a Christmas present. Not a bad little train set for $40.00. It's a dual diesel Santa Fe set and both engines are powered, have lights and transformer reverse capability. It came with a model train depot a few RR signs and enough people to model New York. The transformer seems a little underpowered but for the most part it was a pretty good buy I think. As a bonus, Model Power's EZ track is compatible with Bachmann's so we got her a Bachmann extension pack as well. It was worth it for this cutey.
