So, stepping out of my comfort zone. Did a little digging here and online a local dealer has this set on sale.

Good set for a home office oval??

It's a nice set. I have six Kato passenger trains, some sets and some I pieced together. I have added light kits to the cars, and I am glad this was possible. Today the light kits are LEDs, which have a constant light level.

Depending on what it costs, Yes, I think you can't start better. :)
How much?

I have that set and really enjoy being able to run it on the dining room table in my small apartment when I need to get a train fix but don’t want to deal with my o gauge stuff. Like most, if not all, kato products, it’s a simple but high quality set. I also added the lighting kit to the cars in my set and it’s quite easy to do.

$210 isn't bad, especially considering the pleasure you will get. I bought most of my passenger stuff fifteen years ago and probably spent about $150 per set then. I am watching a UP train and a Burlington Northern set go around now. Maybe I am simple minded, but I love watching the lighted cars go by.
