@Mallard4468 - I take it you are calling me a sucker! Yes, I am feeding the monster and another with the Z on the end. However, I have been trying to throw more of my business toward Ma & Pa stores. There are two in particular who I'll definitely give a shout out to once I've exhausted them of my wish list.
Along these same lines and my real reason for responding to your comment, is that I have been taken aback by some of these Ma & Pa stores who "maintain" shopping websites. In some cases, I've attempted to contact the owners in regards to stock, actual costs, etc... I have been meant with either crickets or I have been given the "I'll check on that tomorrow" line over and over again. In some cases I have placed orders only to be meant with, (no kidding) we have none of these items in stock.
What I'm essentially saying is that I feel if Ma and Pa stores want to compete SUCCESSFULLY in the vast arena of the Model Train web Market, then they need to make more of a concerted effort with maintaining actual stock counts and provide a much higher level of customer service than they are now. I don't feel that's asking to much of them.
