Though ugly, I thought it might possibly be my duty to expose the insidious downward spiral that is one mans N scale rolling stock addiction. Addiction = that frightening lack of self control that somehow overtakes innocent, seemingly decent individuals, ultimately leaving them sometimes pennyless, and strewn along side an ash heap of scattered plastic bits, loose wheels, and broken dreams.
Yes I buy N scale. Sometimes I need it....and sometimes JUST BECAUSE I WANT IT. Can't explain it really......guess it's just how I roll (doing his best Barney Fife tough guy impersonation).
Have 36 cars on my layout....and these....well they're just "extras". Those two columns on the left are all prestigious names like: trix, bachmann, model power, roco......and I dumped a load of cash on em' too....nearly three bucks each. And them other ones on the right.....don't even ask how much on those beauties. Atlas? Who can afford Atlas? Walthers even? Microtrains? Have I lost my mind?......(uhh.....yeah!)
Yes...I live life on the edge. Don't get too close......I might take you down with me. Turn back while you're young and still have strength.......or you might end up living in a van down by the river.
