      Bachmann C-19 Price

      Hey folks, 

       

      I have begun my search for a Bachmann C-19 at of course, the best price.

      I am planning on using the engine as a base to model South Pacific Coast number 13, so a few modifications will be made and a little "kit bashing"  will take place.

      Up until this point it seems like the best price I have come across is on eBay for 550 bucks including shipping. Would I expect that this is going to be the best I will find, or should I keep on looking hoping for something better? 

      C-19 unlettered

       

      Thank you in advance, 

      Matt

      If it is actually a Bachmann C19...

      If it is complete, not abused, and running; it is a rather good price...but tomorrow is another day, and you can never tell what will show up, on Evilbay...

      There will always be a better price, but how long do you want to wait and search?

      NIB?  I think that's a pretty good price.  Al Kramer was selling them last spring for about $605 delivered and that was the best at the time.

      I usually see them for between $700 - $800, so $550 including shipping is a great price. Looking at ebay, I see these are being sold by Al Kramer. I've bought stuff from him before. All has been as advertised. If I didn't already have two C-19s on the roster, I'd be ordering one myself!

       

      Later,

      Yea, if I wasnt saving my pennies for something else, I'd grab a couple more.  That's a great price, and its probably the best locomotive Bachmann has come out with.

      Are you going to let us know what phase of Amtrak your planning on going with?

      $550 is an excellent price. If your holding out for something below that I think you will have a long wait.
