Scales Modeled: N, O

I have been into N-scale for a long time, but have been taking up a larger interest in O-gauge the last 4 or 5 years. I'm not fussy, I collect any affordable and decent quality brands that offers trains in pre-bankruptcy blue "Rock Island" schemes. Scale or plausible only, no fantasy R.I. paint schemes.

I find it a little too limiting (okay, maybe WAY too limiting) to just collect a particular brand name or two. Heck with that.

HO only, but my son does N scale.

I voted Bachmann and other. Collect and run in order of affection.

Rivarossi - Introduced to the brand in the 1960's. First engine was the Plymouth Switcher. Sold it many years ago. Just replaced it. Nostalgia purchase. Others - 4-4-0's, Y6 Mallets, Mikado. Aspire to a Big Boy.

Atlas RS-3 & S2 diesels - Great runners
Life-like (Proto 2000 Series) - Like the packaging, nice runners.
