I look for cheap 2600s from time to time on Ebay to play around with and
figure out how to best program the live ones at work. As I recall, a
2610 with a WIC-1DSU-T1 will generally go for about $400-500, a
2620/2621 (fast ethernet built in) goes for ~$700. But it depends alot
on age, IOS version, and demand that day. Additional T1 WICs are in the
range of $100.

You can easily drop a second T1 WIC in the existing router.
Configuration is tricky if your going to try running a multi-homed
network (i.e. hosting servers/machines locally that have public IP
numbers, accessed through ISPs with different IP ranges). Otherwise
setting up to T1 links is rather straight forward, each T1 having a
different IP, dual routes to the world. Of course, both T1s go out
through the same phone lines, through the same CO most likely. So a tall
truck ripping the lines off the pole down the street, or your friendly
backhoe down at the CO will still take out both T1s.
