I don’t think it is possible to go back to these industries. I think Bombardier has the market for North America.

That train set was originally sold by Lands’ End a few Christmas’s ago. The train was not a good seller, it took a few years for them to sell out that edition. The fact that it was a limited edition and a poor seller may make your set a sought-after collector’s item

Mostly it has to do with size but also different designations in different parts of the world. All are motor driven, operable on tracks. O is the size of Lionel and American Flyer in the US, popular about the time of WWII and ten years after. Track width is about 2″. HO is half O and is intended for smaller layouts, track width is about 1″. N is smaller and for the same reason of layout size. G goes in the other direction and to my eye is about 3 times O and is Garden – lines intended to be used outdoors, so bigger scale. There are larger ones in real steam and different european sizes.
Actually, the ones that come up on Antiques Roadshow most often are not the operating trains at all, but the cast iron and stamped sheet metal play toys of 1890-1920 which are 4 to 6 inches tall.

…if you can buy a piece that bends upward to go from low to high? Any info is appreciated! I am 14 and I am very interested in model trains.

Answer by Chris
The scale you pick depends on what you are trying to do and how much space you have. HO scale is bigger and the most common choice among model train hobbyists. It is usually easier to buy trains, cars, buildings, etc. for HO and you can get more specialized easier with HO. For example, if you want a train set with just Pennsylvania Railroad cars and trains, or if you want a model layout depicting the 1940’s, you probably want to use HO scale. N scale is nice if you are limited on space or are looking to model just a small layout with no specific theme or era. The supplies for N scale tend to be more expensive and are more limited in availability or variety.

As for your second question, I think you want to know how to elevate your track so you can cross over a road or another track. If that is the case then there are several options. Depending on how high you wanted to make it and how quickly it would need to rise, you clould always custom build this yourself. Just make sure that before you build anything permanent, that a train and its cars will work on it.
There are tressel or mountain kits available at many train hobby stores that will help you do this as well. Since these offer clear instructions on how to set them up, this is your best bet if you are new to model railroading.
