Hey guys new here. As i stated in my introduction i got a life-like set for christmas from my in-laws. I like it cause its a cool gift idea but i do have the chance to take it back and get somehting else if i want. So I thought about taking it back and getting a bachmann set I've had my eye on. Is the bachmann better than the life-like? I'm looking for a good starter set thats easy to expand off of. I'll stick with this and make sure its a hoddy I really enjoy befor I go all out on a big layout. Any suggestions? If i can find the backmann set i've been looking at I'll post it.
