USA Bought my first N scale today

The VERY entry-level Bachman Thunder Valley N scale ran great right out of the box, despite being over six years old (still in its unopened original box).

Thanks to reading this forum I learned the importance of connecting the tracks perfectly right to avoid problems. Despite the hassles of connecting everything correctly, it was worth it.

Thank you. I bought it for $1 at a pawnshop. It is filled with wiring that requires three flat disk batteries, yet it has no lights.

Enjoy that train, Vincent. N-scale can be a bit frustrating at times due to it's size, but you sure can get a lot of train into a small space! Did you get a discount price due to its age?

10% off. But you can't find out the age until you open it.

Kool,

Will you start finding all those neat things now in N scale. Love your posts, you find stuff I never would have thought existed.

I love my N scale stuff, but think HO would have been a better size to deal with. I have plenty of room, but now I have a lot of room. I am looking for high detailed tanker cars, late model if you run into any of them.

Welcome to N scale sir.
