deciding to stay HO can afford N because no one says my items are of no value and u guys are like my best friends here in the HO scale forum

and have you seen HOW EXPENSIVE A TRACK PACK IS
100 big bucks for an locomotive the size on 3 inches RIP OFFF

railroad items can get expensive, yes. but there are great deals out there as well, you just need to shop carefully. BUT!!! given your age you should only shop with your parents. (anyone remembers the story when pre teen purchased a caterpillar excavator from ebay?)

as i said i might have some N stuff for you (and hope some evening i will actually have moment to take pictures),. the price will be below ebay. but in any case i expect to converse with your parents either via email or over the phone about any purchase.

try not to buy directly off a brands website. look at modeltrainstuff for example, they rnt a brand, and they have cheap prices, look a this: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Bachmann_N_B23_7_B30_7_BN_p/bac-61354.htm
and this: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Athearn_N_40_3_Bay_Hopper_BNSF_p/ath-11990.htm

and even this: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Athearn_Stack_Car_BNSF_p/ath-17215.htm

thats a burlington northern engine, 5 hoppers and 3 intermodal containers for $105.00

EVEN with ho scale.
engine: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Bachmann_HO_11707_FTA_NYC_Lightning_Stripe_p/bac-11707.htm
passenger cars: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Branchline_HO_Pullman_6_3_Pullman_Sleeper_NYC_p/181-5615.htm
and
:http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Branchline_HO_Pullman_6_3_Pullman_Sleeper_NY_p/181-5616.htm
and
also: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Walthers_HO_16741_Pullman_Standard_10_5_Sleeper_N_p/932-16741.htm

so there is one nyc ho scale locomtive, 4 nyc passenger kits, and 1 non kit for 80$ and you could probably find a nyc b unit dummy for 20 dollars, totalling $100.

so here is N rolling stock i have (i ahve some more but thats will be enough for now). asking 10$ for 3 cars. hek, make it 4 cars.
now that i'm thinking about it, locomotives i'm not going to offer simply because i haven't seen them run and don't want any surprises.

I want the SOU ones. That is if I can get them to grow larger with some fertilizer.:D
