I got to thinking about the thread about your favorite N scale equipment and then started trying to remember what was the first thing I ever either bought or was given. And in all honesty Im not sure what it was. I believe it would have been an Atlas train set purchased at a department store in Peru Indiana called G C Murphys. Probably the C liner with a couple of cars, a loop of track and a transformer. I think it went for around $12. How about sharing your story of your first n scale stuff?
