What's the best Model train set to start with and use?

I was told it was Bachmann, So I got the EZ Command Center model 00501. After getting it I fount out that in order to get the sound. I would have to update my decoders or buy new engines. I'm looking at a round $80.00 to $250.00 to get this option. I all so fount out that in order for me to encode them. I would need a new transformer that costs like $400.00. So that I can code the new decoders or new engines.

Right now I'm not happy with Bachmann. And I didn't know that in order to even start a new hobby would cost all most a $1000.00. That's what I have into it all ready.

So is there some thing better that doesn't cost an arm and leg, Or haft my saving. That has all these options that won't hurt my saving or my back pocket. I do know that these items I couldn't sell them for what I paid for them, So any one have some thoughts on this. Or even an idea.

HI Bigjoe,
Sorry about your trouble, Bachmann makes some top notch stuff in their Spectrum line but you might do better buying individual pieces to build a set. DCC control is the way to do but there are other ways to go about it. Model railroading can be as expensive or as cheap as you want it to be. First of all, can you return the set? If not, no problem, everything that is in that set can be used later. I just got two of my N Scale Steam locomotives upgraded to DCC with sound for $140 each. This included decoder, speaker and installation. Yeah it's a lot but I did it over several months so not a huge cash outlay and the performance is unreal. I had shopped both of these locos online and had about $40 each in them.
Digitrax makes some good DCC systems starting around $200. You can add to them as you go. My system will handle 20 locomotives and I don't have anywhere near that many, and since it's just me I seldom run more than two at a time anyway. Also the Digitrax system will run a non DCC locomotive as well. Buying used is also an option. I get most of my stuff online and if you shop right, you can get items for about half of retail. After Christmas lots of stores discount model railroad items. In the spring and summer you can get good deals on Ebay as well.

Good luck and hope this helps.
