    Hoping to get an order delivered to CA by friday of unitrack.

    I used toy train heaven last time and it took 2weeks. Anybody know who online can do it fast but at a great price????

    I love BLW but they are low on unitrack stock.

    Thanks as always - MarcO

    Maybe call Fifer Hobby in New Mexico? They may or may not have it in stock, but you can ask. They also might be able to arrange a drop ship to you. Their prices are always competitive. I have no affiliation, but I am a repeat customer of theirs. Mike Fifer is also an active member of this board.

    Fifer stocks the full line of UniTrack. He is probably a good bet.

    Toy Train heaven took a while because they're on the opposite side of the country. Their prices are competitive, but they were by far the cheapest the last time I ordered HO track (1990's)

    When I say took forever I mean to ship my order, not once its moving. In fact right on the website it says it could be 5 days for my order to ship and im familiar with geography and ground transportation. I have no issue with that. They do have good prices, service, and selection but sometimes I need it earlier than 10 days from when i order ( shipping is 5 days).


    Im looking for dealers on the west coast but not in CA so i dont pay tax. I buy N and O (3R). Fifer hobby looks pretty good, anybody have additions for our list?

    Thx
