So today i took the plunge and bought a bunch of gear for my set up. I went to Rail 'n' Thusiast in Surrey Hills ( Melbourne, Australia ) on friday night as it seemed to be one of the few of the model train suppliers in Melbourne that stocked alot in N scale. After a while discussing what i was going to need i came back in the next day and bought up on whole bunch of stuff. I havent made a layout yet but it shouldnt be too long. Heres what im starting off with: Controller: Digitrax Zephyr Basic Set Track: 7 x Peco Code 80 1m Flex Track 2 x Peco Code 80 Streamline Electrofrog Medium Radius Right Hand 1 x Peco Code 80 Streamline Electrofrog Medium Radius Left Hand Metal Rail Joiners Nylon Rail Joiners Large Sheet of Cork Loco: Atlas DCC GP-40 Rio Grande Rolling Stock: Atlas Caboose Southern Atlas Beer Can Hooker Chemical Micro-Trains 50' Composite Gondola Central New Jersey Book: N Scale Model Railroading - Getting Started in the Hobby I got all of this brand new for AUS$485 (approx US$370) So i cant wait till i get all this up and running.
