Sale now on through the end of the month. The excellent Sacramento & Northern Route 30% off, $27.99

The perfect companion for my GE 44 Tonner S&N repaints in the library . . . or is it the other way round?

I see the San Francisco route is 60% off. Any comments? The price is right.

I've just bought that myself, Squire, I am checking the Google Street View images of San Fran against the route at the moment, it looks quite true to form, and as the route is 60% off at the moment, I couldn't resist it really. Plus you get the CalTrain, and I can run my UP and SP freight trains on here as well, it looks a good price for what you get.

That's about the third time I'd seen Feather River in a sale, alongside the perennial sale item Munich - Rosenheim (which is a dreadful all around according to the German board)

I got myself the Feather River and California Zephyr and the California Peninsula route to complete my USA collection.

I will never buy Feather River at full price, for I don't subscribe to the idea that 2/3 of a crew district should be called a complete route. Oroville - Portola is WP's 3rd Sub, the route ending at Quincy Jct just didn't cut it for me. But at 60% off, why not, even if only for the assets?

Some items are 100% off, but only in combination with others in so called bundles???

If you bought that don't forget about DeeLee's FR extension.

Edwin, If I may be permitted to interpret what they have nearly all said about Marienplatz, was if DTG had implemented the real Marienplatz, there would have been a problem with the track plan because of the overlying tracks, especially in the editor. Nevertheless, they could at least have separated the two tracks, albeit at the same level, but, they have now completely implemented it fictitiously. So, I personally overlooked this little problem, as I am not too interested with their Underground rail system, and I obtained the Munich - Rosenheim route which I think is brilliant, I personally think it's better than the Augsburg and Garmisch routes, there is nothing WRONG with it, at all, it's very modern, it's very nicely built, the trackwork is smooth running and excellently constructed, with lots of things to do, Munich is massive with about 4 yards and a huge Depot, you can run freight and passenger trains all the way down to Rosenheim, don't forget that the Trainworks team did an upgrade on this route with trackwork, signals and vegetation, my only criticism is that it is only 64 km (40 miles) long, I would have liked to have gone further *!!wink!!* , it's no different to the S1 Hamburg to Lubeck layout, which I have also purchased, they, for me, are 2 of the best German layouts we have ever had from DTG, in my opinion.

And don't forget to obtain all the reskins of the Feather River F7 loco by our lovely friend Buzz, all in the library.

it seems all the bundled offers were messed up and have been pulled from the sale.

There are still some price discrepancies: WP GP20 is advertised at 30% off, yet I bought it at 50% off *!greengrin!* .
