My youngest started at 4-1/2. He's 16 now, and has his own layout and everything. Doesn't do it as much as he used to, but to be fair, I lost interest for a while at that age myself.

Well, it's really a matter of personal choice; no one has to do DCC. I would not, however, let the age of your locomotive fleet be the ONLY reason that you don't adopt it. Yes, it's more work to...

I never said prices WON'T go up, only that they don't necessarily go up. However, any company using minimum wage increases to justify a 20% price hike is cheating you.
