Best answer:

Answer by shroud
HO allows for great detail in the train and the landscape you build but takes a lot of space
N is harder to detail but uses less space
if you have 10sq feet you can do a lot more with the N then the HO

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.

How to tips for better, more reliable N scale track from Model Railroader

In this how-to video from Model Railroader magazine, Managing Editor David Popp shows you some easy techniques for laying derailment-free N scale track on your model train layout. David shows how to cut flex track, work with Peco rail joiners, solder rail joiners, file the joints until they’re smooth, and add feeder wires. Using these techniques on your N scale layout will keep your trains running smoothly and on the track. Most of David’s techniques will work on HO or O scale model railroads also. Then he shows some trains in operation on his N scale Naugatuck Valley New Haven layout.

She is clearly insecure and jealous of you. There is something going on in her head that makes her self esteem low. Just ignore it, you are on the right track, she is not.

Would judo or bjj work better with taekwondo?

Question by Kat: Would judo or bjj work better with taekwondo?
I know I have told you that I am 5″2 (roughly 160cm) a few posts ago, but the answers I got there were bit mixed? Some said it was bjj and some said it was judo that worked better for a small sized person.

Anyways, to add to the one, here is more information about me:

– Does WTF taekwondo (green belt, been doing it for around nine months)

– Is 16 years old (sophormore/Year 10 student)

– Weighs 99 pounds (I am female)

– Wants to learn a grappling art because
a) self defense reasons (there have been one or two rape cases this year, and I don’t want to be the star of the next one)

b) competitions

c) excersise (I didn’t choose physical education for my Higher School Cerficate but would still like to keep fit)

And here are some questions I want to ask:

1) How long does it take to reach black belt in either art? I know there is no “set” date, but how long approximately? Also, how long is it that I will have enough skills to defend myself against someone who is unarmed and untrained?

2) I heard tht bjj is useless against one or more opponents of if the ground is littered with dangerous things like broken glass or sharp rocks? True?

3) Is judo useless without the gi? I don’t want to go to no gi classes as I want the whole cultural experience as well as the physical one (yes, I am one of the few students who enjoy bowing before each lesson and learning Korean terms in my taekwondo class)

4) I can train two sessions a week (around ninety minutes each) because I already do taekwondo and my mum says that she wants me to concentrate more on my school work. Is that good enough?
P.S. There aren’t any girl wrestling clubs in my school (there is a cheerleading one though- but I am not instructed xP)

Best answer:

Answer by ISDS
Honestly, I believe wrestling to be a better combo for you than the two you mentioned. Why? Because I believe high school wrestling will expose you to the mentality of “dirty fighting” more than the other two would, plus since you’re 16 you could train for free and a lot longer than if you took Judo or BJJ.

Since your mum wants you to concentrate more on school work then wrestling will give you access to tutors and study groups that are designed to help the school atheletes make the grades so they can continue to compete.

which is better lionel o scale trains or ho scale?

Question by Sean C: which is better lionel o scale trains or ho scale?
ive been interested in model railroading and railroad history ever since i was little ive got lionel stuff i want you to answer and give your opinion

Best answer:

Answer by Glenn P
I do both. They both have their merrits.
O scale takes more room but is more flexable. If you can deal with the middle rail being there it also has lots of scale equipt. available for it. More of everything is available including command systems.

HO is smaller, more fragile, but you can pack more into less space. Generally cheaper but more scale stuff can be found. Downside is that there is less available accessories, engines, systems etc. Plus if your not carefull they break easier (details like handrails etc)

Who makes a better HO Train Set Atlas or Bachmann?

Question by Swirlybirdman: Who makes a better HO Train Set Atlas or Bachmann?
Hi i am trying to find out who makes a better Ho train set. Right now i am looking at Atlas’s Trainman train set and Bachmann’s golden spike santa fe set. I am really into the freight sets. If you have any other suggestions please add them. Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by newrideforu
Out of those 2 I would go with the Atlas set due to the quality of the trains. Track is going to the same or close to the Bachman. I would look into a set from Athearn also they are great. Try a look at there website. Bachman markets a line called Spectrum is a premium brand and is much better than thier regular line also check the website for details.
