Hello! As you can probably see I'm pretty new to the forum. I've been wanting to get back into model trains lately and I was planning on starting by accomplishing one of my childhood dreams. I always wanted a layout with scenery and the works, so now that I'm a little older and a little wiser I've been thinking about tackling the project. I was considering HO scale at first but I have to be honest, I forgot how much some of this stuff costs. So now I'm thinking N-scale might be my choice. The only problem is I remember when I was younger, probably about eleven years ago, I got an N-scale set for my birthday. I was so excited I ran up to my room and set it up. Only problem was the damn thing de-railed so often I couldn't use it. My dad attached the track to a board thinking that would help but it didn't at all. And that was pretty much the end of my N-scale experience. So, long story short, have N-scale trains gotten better over the years? Are there tricks to keeping them on the track that I didn't know about? I realize this is a long winded first post, but I plan on putting a lot into this project and would like to actually be able to use it. Thanks!
