After being out of the hobby for several years, I now want to start up again, in HO scale. I sold all my equipment and have NOTHING right now, so I am looking to find out what the BEST equipment is. I'm not into brass models, so let's leave those out. I find the MTH line appealing, as well as the newer Walthers, Proto, Athearn & Broadway Ltd. That said, I don't know much of anything as far as real quality goes. I would appreciate any pointers you folks might send my way. I am interested in buying the BEST quality models. I hate really fragile models, where if you look at them sideways, detail parts fall off. If you were starting out with nothing and had a pretty good income and could pretty much afford any type of equipment, what would you do? Thanks.
