Whether you are new to the hobby or have been modeling for years, N scale trains are a fun and creative way to build model trains. These models mimic real life trains, but are a fraction of the size. This makes them ideal for those who have limited space.
N scale trains are also less expensive, so you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a model train layout. A good N scale starter set is a great place to start. It can be used on any rail and you don’t have to worry about buying new track pieces. You can also purchase decorative elements, bridges, and track to expand your layout.
