Just my observation but the LHS and ebay seem to not have any train set offerings from Atlas these days. HO, O, N, all have dissapeared from the store shelves these days. Athearn used to make several nice HO train sets as well. I have only seen one of those lately. So this begs the question, How are we to get younger people into the hobby if there are no starter options. I am also very much against DCC or similar in a train set that is designed for beginners.. I was in a hobby shop last Christmas and a young boy was there with his grandmother. They got sticker shock from DCC sets that the LHS had and he chose a LEGO train instead.
