    Hello all,

    After coming to the point that I am done with my R/C racing career, I am now going to jump back into the R/R hobby again.

    I have a few questions about N scale, I am sure some of you can help.

    First, I would like to know what is some of the better companies that make N scale engines and rolling stock. I have looked at alot of Model Railroader mags, but would like the input from people that use N scale. Also, what would be the best track to use?

    The layout that I am planing, would be a large yard, (I really enjoy switching), and a loop for when I am in the mood just to sit back.

    Any web sites on N scale that are good to look at?

    I am sure that I will have more questions later, but thanks to those that post with some answers.

    0,,,,, just to name a few. These all have GREAT rolling stock and engines. Don't forget about Walthers to,, they have almost everything you need for the MRR world!!!

    Atlas Code 80 ( or Atlas Code 55 (, that is just my opinion. I like the Atlas track better then any of the other stuff out there.

    I like switching layouts to, my new N scale layout is a HUGE steel mill that is 10' long. Starting it this week.

    Hope this answeres your questions for now :D :D

    First, what is the era you want to model, steam, diesel, a mix of both ?
    Atlas makes good smooth running diesel locomotives.
