I have purchase things from Yankee Dabbler via Ebay before; but, until recently hadn't bought directly from their store. Here is where they are: Yankee Dabbler 101 West Kings Hwy, Bellmawr NJ 08031. I don't know how you pronounce Bellmawr and I guess that's not to important. If you are a user of DCC, than you should familiarize yourself with Yankee Dabbler as they are great company to do business with. The last two items I have purchased from them only cost me $3.00 in shipping fees! These where a Digitrax DH166D decoder and a Digitrax UT 4 Throttle. Had I purchase these items from M.B. Klein or some other retailer the shipping would have been up to $8.00 or higher. Their price discounts are also excellent, The DH166P was $24.00 with a suggested retail price of $32.00. I find Yankee Dabbler to generally have a price cheaper by a couple bucks on decoders.

Mark: Thanks for the info on Yankee Dabbler for DC supplies. More than several years I purchased decoders on EBay and found some deals. Many of these decoders sit in a box awaiting installation, but since they are close to vintage lack some of the features that newer decoders offer. I should buy decoders when I need them for my non-DCC locomotives.

I' ll have to check out their web site.

it's pronounced Bell Mar. Located in South Jersey not to be confused with Belmar a coastal resort in Central Jersey. I have dealt with Yankee Dabbler both at Timonium and at the Edison, NJ train shows. Good service / prices.

I have used Yankee ddabler several times for DCC items. Had excellent service from them as well. If you go directly to their website, and join their mailing list there are some offers throughout the year.

Most of my DCC purchases have been through YD. I've dealt with them at several train shows. They explain Digitrax better than the Digitrax people! Prices are always competitive.

I have bought many boxes of PECO track, best price around, and turnouts over the past 8 months with no issues. Also purchased various other items, with fast shipping and good tracking, and would definitely recommend YD to anyone.

I agree I have purchase from Yankee Dabbler on-line many times. Will probably never go to their showroom though. I had enough of New Jersey when I was on assignment there a couple decades ago.

Why? We don't bite. :confused:. Beside, they are in South Jersey, not far from the bridge to Philly. I have only dealt with them at Train Shows, but never unhappy with them.
