Default Nikon D90 - A worthy upgrade?

Hello RP.Net-ers,

I've been photographing trains for a while, using the relatively cheap Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ4. For Christmas, I decided it was time to get serious.

After careful research, I found (what I think) I'm looking for - the Nikon D90. I know that some here use it, but for those who don't, here are some statistics:

I've found a kit on Amazon that includes an 18-105mm VR lens:

The questions I have are:

1. Does the price seem reasonable for the camera and what's included with it (note: The body alone costs $800)? I'd prefer not to buy a used or refurbished camera.

2. For those who have this camera, what do you think of it for railroad photography (and general photography, for that matter)?

Thanks,

Nick
