It is entirely up to you Rahjiggah on whether or not you want to buy a starter set... In my opinion, it can be a good way to get the basic stuff for cheap... For example, the O scale starter set I bought MSRPs for $330, and I probably got it for less too... If I were to have bought everything separately:

That totals almost $500 which is way over what the starter set cost me... I just figured I would put this up for you to see... Now all this means nothing though if no starter set interest you, LOL... The biggest thing though, like Smokey said, do not buy anything you will regret :)
Sounds like a plan... When you do buy it and get everything set up, you have to make sure that you get some pictures up here if you are able to :)
My question is, are all N-scale tracks compatible with the other brands? Will any N-scale locomotive work on any brand of track?
Well, I am assuming that N scale is just like other scales... As far as I know, track from different manufacturers will not be able to fit together, so you need to decide on which track you want... Yes, any locomotive will work on any brand of track :)
