I decided on N scale.
Now to design and build my layout...
Could you clarify about the couplers?
I found some N stuff on this website: Model Train Stuff-N Scale steam locomotives. They do have a larger selection in HO, though.
Are those N products not quality? Should I go somewhere else?
Another question: Are train cars and products of different manufacturers compatible?
**Yes, after law school (may move out after pre-law) I should be able to take this out.
**I could probably work in 1:160.

I am a beginner model railroader(?), and I was wanting to know: Should I go with N or HO scale? I have a (give or take) 7 x 4 space right now, I am not employed (haven't graduated yet), but size is not a problem. I would like to know the pros and cons of each. Thanks for all help in advance...
