Model Trains & Model Railroads -
much more than just toys!

The essence of model railroading is the challenge of creating a miniature slice of life with trains as the focal point. This is called a "layout". A railroad layout usually has a theme and everything you bring into that layout is as realistic to that era as possible.

One of the most important aspects of working with model trains is that this hobby is different for each enthusiast. Model trains are the main focus of the hobby and building a complete, chronologically accurate layout is the essence of the hobby. From there it's all up to you to take this hobby and make it into what you want it to be.

The possibilities are endless. You have your choice of different modeling scales, time periods, geographical settings and prototype railroads. Enjoy the hobby alone or in the company of family or friends. Spend thousands of dollars building your dream empire or enjoy your model railroad hobby on a budget, it's up to you. Model railroading provides a means for you to express your own knowledge and creativity. It can also provide a needed change of pace from your "real job".

Bringing a model train around the mountain, through the tunnel and safely into the station is a great way to unwind at the end of a tension-filled day.
