I consider myself blessed to have had the chance to build the fleet I've got. And I feel bad for those who desperately want to get into this great hobby and yet the value of their dollar makes it impossible!
These must be the tough times of the hobby. Guess I have to wait till the dollar comes back up......someday....
So now you know how we feel when we have to buy stuff that's priced in euros. Let alone in british funny money.

Dealing with euros is actually tolerable since you can deduct the vat, especially from any german seller. Now the brits though are too greedy and attempt to shaft you on the exchange and their VAT by refusing to deduct it -oh we are not VAT registered is the usual excuse.

So welcome to the fun times. Part of the game...

Actually we still don't know how you feel. The US dollar is 25-30 cents up on us against the Euro.lol Maybe our new government will help Canada's economy...not likely...

yep you are right on that Mario ..however i pull government Canada Post loads and trust me ..the online business is growing out of control..for some reason it is not effecting the consumers online for e-bay or amazon....But it is only early yet and i will have to see how we stand in a few weeks if it is still busy like it is or dead.that is true about buying over the years..i won't be buying any big ticket items for awhile yet until the relief is there with the dollar for sure

Live Steam close to these trucks is in 13.7 scale. Mostly small narrow gauge steam engines to run on the popular LGB 45mm wide track.

Saw a Utube with Garden Trains and Garden Trucks combined together - pretty neat to watch a RC excavator loading up railroad dump skips!
