Hi! I am Dave Swanson with the World's Greatest Hobby Program and we are helping you get started in model railroading. In this clip, we are going to look at N Scale model trains. N Scale is the smallest of the common model train scales and allows you to put an off a lot of model railroad in a very small space. What you see running here is a Kato Amtrak Streamliner that looks like many of the streamliners that run in the U.S. today. With N Scale, you have the advantage of putting a lot of model railroad in a small space. In fact, in a two foot by four foot space, you can build a very nice starter model railroad. N Scale is a good choice if you want to build expensive scenery or don't have a lot of space. A wide variety of product is available in N Scale and it is the second most popular scale. N Scale products tend to be reasonably priced with many of the N Scale sets under $100.00 to $200.00 range and they have a surprising amount of detail for their size. Being small does make it a little less suitable for children as these models tend to be a little more delicate and it does require a little better eyesight and hand-eye coordination because they are smaller. In our next clip, we are going to look at larger O Scale trains that have been around for generations and are frequently seen around the Christmas tree.
