A Walthers dealer does not necessarily carry every item in the Walthers catalog. They are free to order the inventory they want to stock.
The Walthers website lists MB Klein (the actual store name; "model train stuff" is their website) as an authorized dealer.
As far as I know, the only store that DOES stock the entire Walthers catalog is the Terminal Hobby Shop in Milwaukee, which is just the retail storefront on Walthers' warehouse.
