I hope someone can help me out. I want to get a train for my kids to go around the Christmas tree. What is the best scale to get? I'm not looking to spend alot of money on it because the kids are young and break everything. I found one at KB Toys that a G scale and it seemed really HUGE, but i saw a HO scale in a hobby shop and that seems really small. I guess i also want to buy scenery and figures for a Christmas village. So what would be the best size for that? The HO figures seem so small, but i think that the G scale train is way too big. Whats the best size train and figures to go under a tree? I know Kohls has lots of figures and villages...most of the figures are around 2" tall....what size train would they go good with? I'm a newbie, so thanks everyone for your help.
