I have wanted to start an O gauge layout for a long time and I am getting closer and closer to taking the plunge. It will be an end to end freight shunting layout, so the Peco O gauge starter set should take care of the track. I want to do something different from my current British OO layout, so I am looking at a USA or Germany based layout. However, American O gauge seems a minefield with 2 & 3 rail options plus non-standard control systems. Then German O gauge seems to consist solely of models from Lenz, which are very lovely but seem to range from expensive to very expensive. Though there does seem to be some bargains on German websites, especially for their little Kof shunter. So does anyone have any advice on where else I should be looking? There is plenty of British O gauge on eBay, but slim pickings for other countries.
