Anyone here into model railroads? It's an expensive hobby, and I am looking to get into it in the next year or two. How did you get started? I am looking for sources of information for beginners on everything from picking the best track, to building tables to wiring and whatnot. Anyone have any good sites I can read? I will be modeling in HO Scale. Anyone have a cool elaborate set that they built? I want ot start small to practice and then build a big one. Yay!!
I've seen some pretty nice setups, but I would suggest not building anything permanent. Once you finish building it, it can get rather dull.
Like I told the wife the other month, my main big setup would be a continuous work in progress. Apart from the HO Scale, I wantto make an N Scale layout, and a Garden Railroad layout too outside. That would be neat. And because it's such and expensive hobby, it would have to be a continuous work in progress. I am not sure I'd ever be able to afford to finish it!!
