Model railroad memories

Has it been decades since you’ve played with trains?

Well, if the memories of all those years ago has you smiling, why not get involved again?

Perhaps you’re like Bill.

He hasn’t even thought about trains for decades, but look what he’s doing now.

Or perhaps you are like Jay?

He still treasures his Grandfather’s American Flyer set.

Maybe you have pictures of you and the old man, happily playing with trains, like Eric?

Either way, if you’ve ever promised yourself that model railroad, even though it was decades ago, now’s the time to make it happen.

Some folk just jump straight back in, like Wayne.

Others ease themselves in, step by step, like Ben.

Or take Gary, it’s been 40 years since his last layout.

But he made good use of lockdown with his HO scale.

And then there’s Doug.

He’s still playing with his 1959 Lionel trains.

    My wife and I have decided to make model train building our joint hobby. It was my hobby years ago and I have fond memories of hours passing as I engaged with it. Now, decades later, I want to build again. But, suspect that techniques and equipment may have changed. Any assistance you can provide about getting us started is appreciated. I prefer to avoid developing non-productive habits.We plan to build on two 20″ x 77″ wood doors (hollow). Thank you.
