    I'm in it now. While the forum was down last night, I ordered a Model Power Continental Express set from http://www.buynscale.com (Brooklyn Locomotive Works) It's a diecast Santa Fe passenger set with an F7 engine. MSRP is $121 and BLW had them on closeout for $52.49 plus shipping.

    I bought my daughter a Model Power HO set for Christmas and I've been quite happy with it. (Although it has seen almost no running time since the battery powered Thomas engines took over her room. :D ) If the quality of their N scale is as good as their HO, I'll be happy.

    Yeah... I wasn't sure what to think of them when I first heard the brand name but people seem to like 'em OK. They're not the cheapest train on the track but they aren't unreasonably expensive either. Overall, I'm pretty impressed with what I've seen.

    Just won a Bachmann Burlington Northern U36-B engine for $17.50 on eBay.
    I'm gonna give a little on the quality since it was cheap and it was Bachmann but I find BN and BNSF stuff hard to resist.

    I will probably be hitting you up for a few peices.
    I already have kind of an idea of what I want to do and a lot of your stuff will fit into the theme.
