Getting started with the World’s Greatest Hobby can be an overwhelming experience. For new modelers, the common question often begins with “Where to start with the wide variety of scales and manufacturers available?” With advancements in modern technology, coupling realism in the operation of your model railroad is as simple as pushing a button. Technological advancement brings locomotives to life with sounds and functions. From authentic locomotive whistles and lighting to realistic operations of engine and ground crew conversations, affordable ready-to-run systems truly place your hands on the throttle for never-ending enjoyment.

Recommendations of Where to Begin

The first stage in creating a model railroad is planning. Planning is truly the discussion of identifying the size, era, and operation specifics of the type of layout desired. Construction services are then tailored to individual skill sets of clients to immediately engage in the hobby based upon our clients' talents. This process eliminates disappointments or concerns associated with the various levels of construction techniques, wiring, or even scenery considerations.

When you have chosen a particular scale and location to model, it’s time to choose a track plan that works for your model railroad. Track plans are available through various publications or can be created to fit a specific space. Choosing the right track plan simply begins with a rough sketch of ideas you like and then broadened within the operating space, budget, and scenery considerations. Keep in mind, your railroading is what you have either seen or have created for your needs. You can be as specific as necessary to provide the maximum realism for your system.
