Best place to buy

Anyone know where the best place is to buy trains online. In perticularly I want to buy an Athearn SW1500 to add to my collection. I looked at several online stores including Trainz.com and Horizion Hobby but all the sites I found had negative reviews and not just pointless reviews but ones the made sense like "they were not notified that I had placed an order by Google till I emailed them." So if anyone could let me know what the best online store to buy trains from that would be much apreciated.

Hi gc,

While I buy old engines only from ebay, I've bought lots of rolling stock, track, tools and other train modelling supplies from...

modeltrainstuff.com

and hobbylinc.com

I've gotten prompt attentive impeccable service from both, and highly recommend them.

I've dealt with modeltrainstuff.com, N scale supply, and micro-mark, and have been happy with them.

I have had extremely good luck with modeltrainstuff.com also. Their prices are reasonable, and their delivery is pretty prompt.

well first off thank you all for the suggestions. Hobblinc does not carry a single Athearn item of any type. modeltrainstuff was one of those ones i looked at and had seen bad reviews on but it is also one of the few to carry the Athearn switcher i want so i gues i'll go with them. suggestions are still welcome.
