    When they give 'discounts' like this, it makes you think maybe they were somewhat overpriced to begin with, sort of "Think of a number and double it!":giggle:

    They're not the only ones though, most of the 'Box-shifters' do the same, so it's often a 'toss-up' between 'do I pre-order to be sure of getting what I want, or do I sit tight, hope they won't sell out, and then maybe they'll reduce the price'? Dilemma!

    I think in the case of the N Gauge 56, it was probably a case of mis-estimating the demand pre-production. I'd guess they are probably just above breaking even at that price?:scratchchin:

    Now, if only they'd overestimate the demand for green class 26/27s..........:avatar:
