Wife desperately needs assistance!

My husband has wanted to start a model train collection for years and I've decided this is the year for him. Only one problem - I have NO clue about what a good scale would be, diesel or electrice, the works!

Anybody w/ some patience care to lend advice? PLEASE! LOL:confused:

You can start here>>> I would pick a set that uses the Life-Like Power-Lok or Bachmann EZ Track sysems to start with as they lock together securely and have a wide range of aftermarket accessories. From there I would pick up a simple car and/or building kit or two, taking care to avoid the dreaded "musthavititus" that easily plagues newcomers. Most layouts and setups you will see are the result of several years of work so pace yourself, learn how they work and how to take care of them and play with just what it is that interests you in this hobby. Blessings, BC
