This is an aspect of this hobby that I simply do not understand. You guys think nothing of dropping $1,000 or more on a locomotive, yet worry about spending $8 for a package of track pins?
Makes no sense to me...
"Not it" , but you are aren't wrong either; it's perspective.
I have yet to break $200 in one shopping visit and would be lucky to top $2000 total in the last ten years. The O.P. seems to be on a shoestring budget as well unless I'm mistaken. I could drop a few hundred on new pins if I got too picky (still leaving many pins as is too ).
But I micro manage for a reason, I'm not a lifelong devotee to being a cheap #@$+@&€ ; I just ended up there by accident.
If I buy and run a new thousand+ dollar train on my old track... I'll send it to you when I'm done that day; I promise. (it means I hit the lotto pretty big )
