Hello everyone. My wife bought me a train set for Christmas. It's an Athearn John Deere Model 'B' Express. I don't know anything about model trains, but would like to set this set up permanantly on a sheet of plywood with some other buildings, etc. Here's what was included in the set: - F7A Locomotive w/ dual flywheels, operating headlights, 5 pole skewed armature motor - 40' Grain Box car - Single Dome Tank car - 40' Flat car with load - Bay Window Caboose - Two Die cast John Deere "Model B" Tractors - Athearn TrainPak 16 volt UL listed power pack - One Oval of HO (1/87th) scale track with integral roadbed track First of all, is this good equipment to get started in model railroading? If so, does anyone have any simple plans for a model RR setup I could get started building? I may need to obtain some more track because it's not a real large oval track that came with the set. Thanks for any replies and help!
