Places to Buy Discount O Scale Model Trains?

I have been thinking about getting into O scale model railroading for a while now. I am currently modeling in HO and N but just curious as to if there is any place to buy O scale items cheap, since everything seems extremely expensive.
I am not intending to move to a larger scale. I want to stay with my current scales, but considering O scale as well.

I fully understand the attraction to the larger scales. If you check eBay there is usually someone selling Atlas O Scale if they are changing scales as well. I will admit it is very nice equipment. Of course you could also use eBay to sell your N and HO to fund your O Scale purchases.

However, instead of going to O Scale, perhaps you could consider S Scale. I am in S for 22 years now. I would not have it any other way. The most prominent producer of S Scale plastic rolling stock (S Helper Service) has the same manufacturer as Atlas O Scale.

Here are some websites you could look at:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/S-Scale

http://www.showcaseline.com/index.html

http://www.nasg.org

and last but not least my own website showing a large quantity of what has been made in S Scale brass

http://www.lanestrains.com

Good luck in your decision to move to a larger scale. You by far will not regret it! I have not looked back once in 22 years after leaving HO.
