ok so one i just got my first proper locomotive today two i live in seattle in the state of washington and three my name is kaedmonA guy has to start some place....!!!
I'd suggest you would be better starting, with a lot more RESEARCH....which is free. Asking people is fine, but you have to discover what you want out of the railroad, and learn something about "Railroading" as a transportation industry, before you can really, successfully, start enjoying the hobby, and asking others for help "MODEL RAILROADING" out in the garden.
It would also be nice to give us a name, so we can address you properly, and a general location where you live.
Thank you for asking...I'm sure some will gladly help if you do a bit of research on your own first.
well one priority is ablity to run articulated locomotives like Garratts and Malletsso, you are jumping about...
Is that the priority order?
- remote control via bluetooth
- overall cost
(I would not go bluetooth outdoors due to limited range... but if your layout won't get really large it is ok. many other wireless options).
One of the most common issues people have making the "right" decision is that the priority of a feature changes almost every time there is a conversation.
Thinking through your priorities, setting them in priority order makes decisions easy.
Not keeping or having priorities makes a whirling cloud of indecision.
