I only dabble in On30. I have attempted (and failed) an On30 flat car. I have started (yet to be finnished) 3 log cars (the kind that is basicly 3 poles, couplers, and trucks) A water tower I made years ago for my old HO scale layout. That water tower looks kind of like an O scale narrow gauge water tower. and finnally attempted to convert a Bachmann Thomas The Tank Engine Percy into an On30 0-4-0 (but cannot find an easy way to make it look American) I am nearing a time where I can start a new layout. I can't decide weather it should be N scale, On30, or LEGO. If I were to go On30, would it be recomended to do DC or DCC, on a low budget? I am interested in DCC for the sound option, no need for long chords as in DC and fewer throttles. I want to do both a circle with a bunch of switching (oh, and this would be portable) So, after all this, do you think I should do DC or DCC?
