Hi all, I am hoping someone can help. I will start with a little background. My grandfather turned me on to model railroads long ago. I am now 25 and haven't touched a train in 15 years. I am just starting myself back into the hobby. When I was young, I had an HO scale train. Now that I am getting back into it, I am thinking about N scale, due to size. What I need help with is deciding if N scale is right for me. Please just post some of the benifits of going with N scale, aside from the space requirement issue. My main issues would be sound, speed, and price. Do trains this size still have a nice sound whipping around a track, or is it kinda wimpy since they are smaller. Are they as fast as your average HO train. Also, how does the cost compared to HO. Any other info would be much appreciated as well.
