Hi everyone. Im new to train modelling (im only 22) and i need some advice on a few things. After researching ive decided the most balanced scale for size and affordability for myself is N-scale. I have done a bit of looking around but havent decided exactly what i want to model. Im from Australia, so either an australian setting, steam from any continent or japanese bullet trains. This isnt such a big deal. I'll have to decide on whats available to me. My main questions are as follows. What brands should i be looking at for locos, rolling stock and track? From what ive seen in forums and websites Atlas and Kato seem to be the best to go for if you want quality. Should i stick to this or does anyone recommend Would there be any compatibility issues if i were to mix different brands of model together? For those people in Australia (specifically Melbourne), where are the better hobby shops to buy N-scale from? And where do people buy from off the internet that they trust. If theres anything else that anybody could help with it would be much appreciated. I have a few projects in mind and i cant wait to get started.
