RC says...I love my BEEP!  The quality & finish are excellent, and it is rugged to boot - and you can't beat the price!!!! I can't say enough good things.  I am an aging Boomer, who also grew up with a love of trains, but  those big train makers seem to think we are endless resources of cash.  Kudos to you for making an affordable product.  A BUDDY is next on my list.
