Every time I visit the forum, I see 5-6 times more people reading the N scale section than those reading the HO section. I looked in the forsale section, and seen many more N scale items than HO. Why is this? The models don't seem as detailed as the HO, to me at least. The cost is about the same for Loco's ( HO vs N ) from what I have seen. I read here that adding a sound chip isn't too easy either. I've also heard the sound isn't as nice as the HO as well. I've also been told N scale has more derail problems due to track size. So whats the attraction? Because of the space savings on the layout table size?
