Tate- I just have to tell you that S scale is MORE EXPENSIVE than O scale. Just becaise S is a smaller scale does not mean that it is less expensive. Figures cost more (when you can find them) and there are very few S scale vechicles available. Structures may cost a bit less than O scale ones, but again, there is less avaliable. On the other hand, if you elect to scratchbuild your structures and freight cars and modify inexpensive HO locomotives, then you might be able to save some money. On30 is about as inexpensive as you can get. Just remember that the $30 HO loco that can be made into Sn42 or On30 will run like...like..well, it will run like a cheap thing that it is. Be prepared to spend some money for decent equipment and you will still need to make it "S" scale! This is my opinion and you can take it or leave it. You are reading experience here, but I know how young guys believe all us old dudes are full of it. Good luck.
