Building a model railroad – let me show you how.

    One of the most exciting and enjoyable hobbies

    • Model railroading is at the top of the list.
    • I have built every kind of model you can think of and railroading is my favorite.
    • It is not expensive to begin.
    • Certainly it is not difficult.
    • Let us show you HOW.

    Welcome to my favorite hobby

    I am 81 years old. I love model airplanes, cars, and boats but I have to tell you, my all time favorite is model railroading!

    I got hooked on model railroading when I read Dan Morgan’s exciting books about beginning a model railroad. I loved building models and felt this would be a new edition to my love for building. Did I ever get a treat! His easy to read, detailed books walked me through every aspect of model railroading.

    He taught me the difference in scale and gauge. I thought a train was a train…not! I, like so many people, wanted to launch out and buy everything I could get my hands on. Dan taught me to just be patient, which is hard to do at 81 and learn the ropes of model railroading.

    Dan showed me how to choose the right scale. I was ready to take over our entire upstairs, but my wife had different ideas. I finally settled on the “N” scale, due to size. Now, don’t let me get ahead of you, because I want you to choose for yourself which scale is best for you and your space availability.

    I was hooked!

    Not only did I order his book, which came as a PDF… I didn’t have to wait for him to ship it. I dived right in and was so excited I got all the bonuses he offered for a ridiculously low price. I discovered that I could join the club and get member prices on all kinds of supplies.

    If I hadn’t already built so many model airplanes and cars, I would have thrown them all away and concentrated only on model railroading.

    Not only did I learn about model trains, I learned the history of railroading, the different trains of history and found that to be almost as exciting as building my first model railroad.

    I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

    All the beautiful layouts, different models, exciting options… I was just overwhelmed! Then, Dan walked me through my track layout, building the scenery and all the backgrounds. Every moment I returned to my childhood in excitement! I couldn’t wait to read the next chapter.

    Joining the Club, I was in contact with hundreds of members, who shared fantastic ideas on how to, where to, when to and how much to pay to do it! The excitement kept building…every day was something new. A new challenge…a new task, something new to try.

    Some brand new idea or suggestion to make my track unique. Did I want to have a forest, a city, a small town, a farm? Oh dear, so much to decide and to get excited about. The more I read and talked with other model railroaders, the more excited I became. I hope some of that excitement is showing!

    I want you to get excited about the possibilities that are open to you as a new beginner.

    Don’t get ripped off!

    Just like everything else, it is possible to buy the wrong stuff. You can do what I almost did and get into the wrong scale, which would have caused a divorce! I could have run out and bought stuff I didn’t need and couldn’t use. Dan slowly guided me back on the right track (no pun intended).

    My new friends in the Club offered me great suggestions on where to get stuff, what to look for and what to avoid. Saved me a fortune and loads of time.

    After all those years…

    I am more excited about my new adventure and I want to share it with you. I want you to be as excited as I was when I discovered Dan.

    Wow…it was like a whole new world opened up for me. Got kids or grand kids? Are you a kid, either in age or heart? I promise you will enjoy this exciting venture more than anything you have ever tried.

    Okay, let me just share before you click on the link and go to see what Dan has got to offer, unless you already jumped the gun, that Dan’s stuff is 100% money back if you aren’t happy. It is a no lose situation. But don’t wait, I don’t know how long he will continue to offer it and I don’t want you to lose out on this great venture.

    Okay, so what are you waiting for?

    Just give it a try. I promise you that you will enjoy every fun filled page. You will literally stay up late and do what I did, get up early next morning to rush back in.

    I started searching the internet to find out all the information that Dan told me to check. But you gotta do it!

    Right now…click on this LINK. See for your self. If you’re not 100% happy, he’ll give you all your money back, but I guarantee you won’t be asking!

    You still here? What are you waiting for? Do it now while you have the time.

    1. Very interesting post. When I was younger, one of my favorite things was to play with Lego. As I’m older now, that love for Lego has transitioned into building real houses and buildings and modeling new city layouts. This train modeling hobby really brings me back to those days where I was using Lego to build cool things. After spending all this time on a computer creating new things, I might just need a break and some time to build something directly with my hands. Thanks for your post!

      1. Go for it Kevin. It is fantastic. I feel like a kid again! Let me know if I can help.

        Enjoy the journey.


    2. Who doesn’t like some new adventure? You asked if anyone is young at heart and I proudly say I am. I lobe things like making little models. I think after reading your story, I too am hooked and thanks to Dan, you could share this with us. I am definitely going ti click that kink and get my book too. I am ecstatic to get in the way and start getting materials to making my own model railroad. Thank you so much.

      1. Go for it Henderson. I promise you will love it. Let me know if I can help.



    3. My sister has always been fascinated by the building of models and she does a pretty good work though she is yet to major her areaod interest but I think if I suggest this post to her,maybe she might get interested in building model railroad. Also, the book you suggested should be of Greta help to her too if she decided to go on the lane of building model railroads. Wow! I’m going to share it right away

      1. Great Roland. I promise you she will love it and you might even get bit yourself!

        Enjoy and let me know if I can help.


    4. “We only grow old when we stop playing “. My kids have been only neck for some time now for me to get them a model rail road. They seem to enjoy themselves while they are playing with it and I’ve quite gotten pissed with the noise that follows when they play but seeing your post gives me reasons to want to get involved with them. Thanks for the lessons from this post.

      1. Dane, it’s time to go for it! I promise you will be hooked!



    5. Hi Joe. What an incredible site you have. I absolutely loved your article on Building a Model Railroad. However,It brought back some sad memories for me. When I was a child I loved model trains and used to walk about town with my older brother. We would stop at the window of the local newsagent because he had model trains sitting in it. They were models that I desired so much to own. I worked hard on our farm with my father, mother and siblings and in my spare time I would go to the local supermarket and take peoples shopping to their cars. They would pay me various amounts of coin for doing this. Eventually I had enough money to purchase a train set, so my brother took me to the newsagent and I purchased my favorite one. However, when I took it home my father made me take it back. It seems I was supposed to tell him first. I never did get that set. 

      However , now I have grandchildren and I take them every year to see the train sets that a friend of mine owns and opens up to the public at Christmas time. I think its time to start building my own model railroad, something that the grandchildren can enjoy and own when I’m gone. Therefore I’m going to check out that link to Dans. Jim

      1. Jim, your story matches mine exactly! I had to take mine back for the same reason. Now, I have my own and am telling my children and grandchildren too. Let’s do this for them!

        Thanks and enjoy.


    6. There´s something fascinating about model railroads. The images on your post are very attractive, those model railroads look like miniature worlds. 

      It´s also fun that model trains move like real trains, don´t they? This makes them even more like miniature versions of real trains.

      Model trains are built to mimic real trains, right? I was wondering are you a train enthusiastic; do you know a lot about different trains for example? Or are the model railroads only trains that fascinate you, and not so much real trains?

      1. Kirsti, I’m not an expert on either. I just love model railroading. I used to sit on the train platform in my little hometown as a boy and watch the trains go by. When I joined the U.S. Air Force, I rode the train from Louisville to San Antonio on the L&N, then the KATY. I also rode the train from Louisville in the Air Force to Savannah. 

        I am head over heals in love with model railroading (you may not be able to tell by enthusiasm)! I hope you will catch the bug and join us. It’s a wonderful experience to see the model trains whiz by.
