I have two Rivarossi Milwaukee Road passenger cars.....love 'em!Hello, my collection is HO scale. Most of it is bachmann & Rivarossi
All of my passengers are rivarossi. Most of my rolling stock is a mix of what I find in my price range , or what I am able to repair! Lol my diesels are bachmann spectrum line. My steamers are all rivarossi that I re powered with bachmann motors.

I collect O gauge Marx trains like I had growing up. And also because of their durability, simplicity and readily available parts at very affordable prices. Being a sheet metal mechanic by trade, I enjoy fixing the damaged tin pieces.
I had a basic set from Montgomery ward with the tin litho rolling stock powered by an 898 when I was a kid. I have over the years collected other sets including similar sets and gave them to my children. Now the grand kids are of age and are interested, so I am gathering set pieces for them. I'm still new to the later plastic, but am learning. I do have a question if anyone could help. Is there a track-side actuator for the Marx O Scale Marlines Operating Box Car #249319? Thanks!
I prefer NCE and Digitrax for the same reason regarding DCC. If you by DCC ready locomotive you can avoid any compatibility issues by adding your own decoders. Personally I mainly buy DCC ready or DC for this vary reason. Adding the decoders is not that difficult.I only started three weeks ago, but I have researched off-and-on through the years. I prefer Bachman because they have a wide choice and I want to keep things compatible. However, If I found what I wanted from a different company, I would get it.
The only thing that makes ANYTHING a collectible, is someone wanting to collect it.I'd be curious how many have Tyco in the "other" category. Not so much that these are "collector's items" or anything close to that, but it seems many of us have a bunch of 'em from way back when we were kids. Maybe?
