My birthday's coming up in September, and I get to choose what my wife will spend $300CDN ($181US) on; the remainder is her call. I was originally going to use her money towards Digitrax Empire Builder, but I don't think there's any need to go the DCC route just yet. I am building the layout in preparation for such an event, but really, with a 7 x 12 layout, there's no need. So now I'm pondering what I should tell her to get me. I don't really need any more locos, or rolling stock, so maybe structures ??? I already have a few picked out I want, but that won't use up the $300. Any thoughts??? Is there something you really want that maybe I could steal the idea for ???
