Don’t Let Model Train Sets Be a Limit On Your Dreams

Monday, August 1st, 2011

When I was a child and my father would take me to the toy store, I remember scanning the shelves, always looking for the model train sets as they completely fascinated me. There was just something about the look of the locomotives that I found entrancing. Then one day, I was lucky enough to get a model railway set all of my own. As you can imagine, as a young boy, this was the most amazing day ever! I still have it packed away in the attic somewhere I think.

 

However, even at that age, I found that it wasn’t long before I grew tired of that railroad set. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I got bored of model railway trains completely. In fact, quite the opposite had happened. The problem was that I had just outgrown driving my model locomotive round and round in circles. I was able to get a few additional for my set, which gave it a bit of extra life, but it wasn’t long before I was craving something more.

Now what’s the point of me telling you this I hear you ask? Well, the reason is that if you are looking to get into model railroading, buying a model train set first is probably not the best way to start. Although I got bored with mine, I would still probably suggest buying one for a child, to see if their interest will last and also because they are easier to get set up than other model railways. However, as an adult who is serious about wanting to get into model railways, I would suggest against it.

 

The problem is that like I mentioned earlier, you could soon find that your model train set becomes extremely limiting in it’s potential. Of course, there are far more accessories available for most model railway sets now than there when I was a child, but still I would opt for buying all the parts that you want separately so that you can create you own model railway, to the particular specifications that you want. If building a model railway has been a dream of yours that you are now choosing to pursue, you don’t want to compromise on this, do you?

 

You may think that this will make it more expensive to get set up in the first place and it may be if you don’t do your research properly. Model railroad sets do normally have a cheaper overall price for buying it all as a package. However, if you know where to look and the tricks to pick up cheaper model railway parts, you could actually put your own set together, tailored to your wants and needs and all for cheaper than the price of a model railway set would cost you in a shop.

 

Hopefully having read this, you will now have a better idea of how you want to go about starting you own model railroad and how to do it the right way.
