    (I posted this question earlier in the HO category but probably should have done it here. thanks!)

    I'm wondering if anybody has experience with a couple online outfits that apparently sell a lot of model trains, etc. via the net/mail order.
    one is "trainworld.com" and another is "ahobbycircle.com"

    They appear to have good prices. One reason I'm a little leary is that there are numerous photo-gear outfits in NYC that run wonderful ads and then do bait-and-switch and other slimy tactics. (and there are a some that are outstanding, honest and ethical)

    Trying to avoid the "bad" type of outfit of course..........any comments appreciated
    thanks in advance

    Retailers/websites

    Hi Ceebeeng,

    I have delt with trainworld a few times with no problems. I have never delt with the other site but would highly recomend Standardhobby.com. Its in New Jersey and I found it to be lowest in prices on most items. You can also download there catolog off there site. I live in Wyoming and recieve orders from them in eight days. Hope this helps you out and good luck. Ron ;)

    I have purchased from TrainWorld and had no problems, order was taken, stock was checked, items were shipped on time and all items received were as ordered, sealed in factory packages.
