Trix has done a fine job with the "Super Starter Set". A digital system, nice cars, and some nice locomotives. It helps that I have no particular "Era" in mind to model. In fact, one of the things I like about modeling primarily non-US worlds is the fact that I won't get to compelled to be obsessive about the prototypes...my main rule now is FUN and get what I like! Regardless of country, era, etc... (But it must be digital!)
The Class 003 in the set has been a really fine runner, as has the V 200 (I believe that is its designation, but I am still having trouble understanding all the taxonomies of German and other European locomotives). Of course, as most people know, it pays to shop around for these things! I paid around US $739 for the set, where I saw other dealers (online) with same set in the $900 range!
Something else that I was pleasantly surprised by was the detailing and pure beauty of the passenger cars. This was very impressive and further confirmed the new direction of my hobby!
And finally, the below photo shows the V 200 at my station (which is a KATO Overhead Station), alongside my second purchase: the Dutch version of Trans Europe Express from Minitrix...this one with sound, and the KATO Thalys (see what I mean about disregarding eras and having fun)!
