For several months I have been thinking of joining the hobby and have been drawn to to the G scale trains. I figure the best place to start is with one of the starter sets that it looks like several manufacturers offer for around $200.00. Initially, my intent is to elevate the train in my rec. room (indoors). However, I do have a little bit of land set aside in the backyard that if this hobby turns out to be 1/2 as fun as it looks, that I would eventually build an outdoor layout. Since 2 trains sets may be a hard 'sell' with my wife, I was hoping that some folks could provide a little guidance as to which company offers the best value in train sets for a beginer like myself. The 'dream' would be to purchase the set, track, etc. use it inside to learn the hobby and eventually move everything outside where I could expand. Thank you.
