I've checked out the Tomalco website and it is very encouraging. The track is less than half the price of 2 rail O. In fact everything I have seen in the last 2 days about S scale is very encouraging. It's amazing to me that more people aren't in this scale. It does have a lot of good points and advantages. The only disadvantage I have found is that brass steam engines actually cost more in S scale than O scale. I saw 0-6-0s for $1400. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because I have also seen some HO brass steam engines cost more than O scale brass. I'm not sure why this is. I always thought that the less people you have in the scale the higher price. Maybe there aren't many HO guys into brass. At my LHS there is a super nice HO Erie steam engine (I forget the exact model--might be a Northern) and it is $1,800. This kind of stuff is out of my price range. I wonder if anyone will ever make a die cast steam engine like the Atlas 0-6-0 in S scale for around the same price?
