Thank god the kits are sold out. I was starting to wonder what I would have to mortgage to get three of them. Three units would be the start of a nice roster for a short line. Add in the Lionel F3 and GP9 I have powered and the Alcos from Elmer and you would have all the motive power you would need.

Haha, did you see the price for the READY-TO-RUN models from Lok-n-Roll or A&K ? ;)

As for me, I decided that two will be enough :)

I think this is why we don't often see these short run kits offered for general sale. I am sure the Germans are not grossly profiteering from sales. They are aware of the critism over what things cost to produce in Germany so they don't bother to offer what they make outside of their group. They obviously are affected by costs as well and as we are and as they appear to be holding the Euro together pretty much on their own then they must be doing something right. As for the Lok n Roll loco's well they are pretty much specialist items, they have a purpose made chassis and have a now unavaiable body and are supplied ready painted. As they are not mass produced I think the price is fair as any basically hand made loco will cost a lot more. We can moan about the prices but at least they are out there for us to choose to buy them or not

LNR chassis is a very good deal.

Mine arrived today, and it's incredible!
My hat is off to Christian and Ingo, this has to be the nicest TT model I've ever seen. I haven't run it yet, but I fully expect it to run as well as it looks.
And for the Boss, it weighs in right at 6 ounces or 170 grams.
