Hello IC82 I have been watching your videos for around 2 years. I really want a N Gauge layout but Model Trains are so expensive even on trident trains. Help please. I also was wondering if u could get the a4 silver fox he looks so grand and I have seen a Ho/OO Gauge one and I love how the a4s move sincerely a train enthusiasts Carson haynes.
