How much training should it take to run 3 miles?

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Question by g_saiyaman2099: How much training should it take to run 3 miles?
I was a Marine from 2004-2008, where we would run almost every day, anywhere from 3 to 10 miles. The problem is, when I got out, I stopped running. Started and finished college, and want to work back to getting in shape. I can run that far right now, so I am currently running on a treadmill in the house til I build my stamina back up, and, yesterday being my first day unning again, I only could run a 1/2 mile. 1 thing I did notice though is that the running was definatley a faster pace as well, but I want to get back to the 3 mile point so that I can run outside again. Thank you in advance. This is pretty much my opportunity to get back in shape while being unemployed and looking for a job, so All advice is welcome. Also, I am on a healthy “diet” as in changing what I eat for the better, not a crash diet, and just trying to get into an overall better shape. I am 6’1″ tall, 227.2 lbs, with about 22.2% bodyfat from what my scale wih the electric current thing tells me.

Answer by railbuff
The biggest scale in mass production is G- scale (about 1:23) and is often used outdoors,even in Canada. There are only a few manufacturers of locomotives, Cars can cost from $ 60 to $ 120 and up ($ US) , locomotives from $ 200 to $ 1200 (and up). Check into a hobby shop, or pick up a model railroad magazine (Model Railroader or Railroad Model Craftsman) or one of the Garden Railroad magazines for more detailed information.
You could reduce these costs by modelling your own cars and buildings – many do. There are kits available, for this as well as materials you can get so that you can design and build your own idea. Some even build their own locomotives.
You may have a model railroad club giving an open house type of show, or layout tour – check with the local hobby shop for this information.
Lastly, there is a nonprofit organization called the National Model Railroad Association, based in the US, but with semi-independent regional groups in Canada, Australia, Britain and Western Europe.
I am a member. Contact through its website – nmra.org

How much is this Vintage Lionel Train set worth?

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Question by Bromandudeguy: How much is this Vintage Lionel Train set worth?
I came across a post war, Lionel train set.
It’s condition is about a 5 to 6 out of 10, but it runs and works fine.
All the track and cars are here, as well as some extra scenery stuff.

I believe it is a #2028 set?

I picked it up for 100 dollars and figured if anything it’s pretty neat.

What do you think or know this set in it’s current condition is worth? And should I invest in fixing it up at all?
It has a regular black locomotive and then a bunch of other cars you would normally, see, the set it pretty big actually. And I guess the 2028 is just one car out of the lot, but there is more!

They value things people have had in their families for years. If you could take it to somewhere like this if its worth quite a bit it may be worth it Good Luck
