    Hello all, I'm new here and new to model trains.

    I've started building a layout for my kids (O scale) and have been eyeing a package deal for Lionelville buildings and houses in which I can get a total of 14 Lionelville businesses and houses for under $200 + shipping. I can't afford to spend a fortune on this new hobby. My kids are pretty young and I really can't justify the expense. Anyway, I was just wondering why the MTH buildings are so much more expensive than the Lionelville stuff. I mean, the Lionelville buildings and houses look pretty darned good for the money. They're detailed and lighted just like the MTH buildings. So, I'm curious as to why they're about half the price of the MTH products?
