Hey Zach, I need to to tell you something serious:

 

I officially hate you!!

 

:( I'm j/k but that is an awesome collection and I'm looking forward to seeing photos :D

 

Question in regards to the tracks:

 

Since space was an issue, I had an idea about buying tracks and basically making it go around my room. Is it possible to mount the tracks at a high level (close to the ceiling) and basically making it operational from up there? How would I go by doing this? Thanks

Are you talking about something like this but higher up:

I met this guy at the HiRailers show and he has this layout going around the outside of his room. I thought it was great how he laid it out the way he did. He showed me the removable section that was in front of the doorway. He was a really nice guy. I wish I remembered his name.

 

Zach can tell you for sure what type of material and equipment you would need to make this happen at a higher level for your room.

Thats actually what I was thinking about, maybe higher but exactly what I was thinking about. Thanks Harry and that is a pretty cool video.

 

Holy crap, what an inventory!

 

Shall I dare ask how much you paid for all that?!?

 

I'm sure its in the thousands :eek: But from what I see, it looks amazing.

Hehe. Thanks man. Yeah collecting for over 10 years now..

 

Okay Tracks, hmm. Well, im currently using the "Atlas O 21St century Track System", on my EL. They connect together with REAL looking "rail joiners", or "fishplates" if you will:

Atlas Switch:

My Lower level, im using MTH Realtrax, they snap together. They have a plastic gray colored roadbed already attatched to them:

Shelf layouts are DEFINITELY possible :D, I always wanted one for me. If you plan on constructing a "shelf" layout, it depends on how much space between, where the track will be mounted to (the shelf) to how many inches to the ceiling, & your rolling stock. I enjoy the Atlas track, and probably won't change track systems for awhile; I recommend the Atlas. You would have to run your wires from the track on the shelf, right into your transformer, and your good to go..

Wow thanks for the response and the photos. I have a question, I am located in Queens and I wanted to know where are the best spots to get these trains, tracks, etc. at a good price? Is there an ebay seller who is reputable with these trains? How much should I pay for certain sets? Thanks a lot.

TrainWorld in Brooklyn on McDonald Avenue for a start. I know you can take the (F) to Ditmas Avenue.

 

Here's a link to TrainWorld:

Over the past decade, spending money on Trains, Tracks, Transformers, scenery, etc, lets just say I could be driving My Mazda 6 Fully equipped, paid off.:( OR a down payment on a house .

I go to Trainworld in Brooklyn. Take the (F) to Ditmas Avenue. Ive been going to them for about 7 years now. or you can go to their sister store in Long Island, TrainLand on Sunrise Highway.

 

For the sets:

 

How much are you looking to spend?

Which set? What years?

Subways? Freight? Passenger?

I need details! :D;)

There's a store near the (F) at Ditmas, they tend to have good prices., especially when compared to a basement on West 45th Street that suffers from what I call "Midtown Rip-off Syndrome".

I don't even go there. I go to Trainworld, despite the last time I went I felt like I was about to go to sleep on the train down and decided to take the B67 back to Jay Street for lunch.

Well I'm not sure about spending as of right now :o but I am interested in NY subway cars and work cars. Basically anything associated with NY subway/transit. I'm sorry for all of these questions but I have been thinking about this for a while. Seriously thanks a lot.

Okay well if you put it that way :D. Here's just some items I saw:

 

1. I'm looking at a R-12 non powered work train (yellow) set for 139.99. Is that the normal price for a 2 car non-powered set?

 

2. I am also looking at a work train on a flat car for 89.99. Is this the normal price as well for a car on a flatbed?

How about this mega work train set here:

How about this?

Is this overpriced?

 

Well since you are very experienced. How should I honestly start off?

Is this overpriced?

 

Well since you are very experienced. How should I honestly start off?

 

 

1.) The R-12 Work Train Add ons, I would think you can probably shop around and find it for a price between $99.99 - $125.99

 

2.) The R-17 on the Flat, thats probably the basic price everywhere now. Maybe you can get lucky and find it for $10.00 cheaper, thats about it.

 

That 5 car Mega Work Train Set, NO!:D Definitely not a $500.00 Value yet. You can probably find the cars seperately and find a better deal.

 

The 4 Car MTA Work Train, now this set is in demand. I bought this exact set for $294.99 Back in September of 2002. It can be worth this much, but id shop around for this too.

 

 

Most beginners start off with a traditional train set, which includes:

 

Trains

Tracks

Transformer

 

But modeling purely subways, can be a challenge. There was in fact the Ready To Run Railking MTH NY Yankees and / or Mets 2 car subway set. This set was completed with:

 

2 R-17 Subway Cars . 1 Powered, 1 Nonpowered ( In the Yankee or Mets Scheme)

 

Circle of Track, and a Transformer.

 

Do you currently have anything to begin with? Tracks? Transformers? Train Cars?

Don't be a hater, be a collector;)

 

I'm only joking (or am I?), and I'm really torn between starting a collection or saving up in general since there is a lot of investment in a set/layout. I'll try to make a decision soon though. I am looking into that starter set that you mentioned, I see Trainworld/land has some still. (the dilemma if I do chose that route is whether or not I want Yankees or Mets :D)

Hello Zach I noticed that there are some cars on flatbeds. Can these be removed and can they actually run on the track? Thanks
