Hello all! I have been reading on here for a couple of weeks now and have found lots of good info so far. I bought a Lionel Newyork Flyer, my first, (and lots of extra track) to go around our Christmas tree with the intention of building a 4X8 board in a spare bedroom (about 700 bucks invested). Well the tree came down and I built my board, it was then I realized that there arent many interesting layouts for this size board and I really dont like the looks of the Fastrack anyways. I have posted everything on Craigslist and plan on stepping down to HO. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for so I am looking for some guidance on what is the most realistic looking track. I think I like the way the Atlas looks but what is the differance in the 83 and the 100? I also know that I will want to install DCC soon but there seems to be a few different ones out there. Any pros and cons will be appreciated.
