Prior to the very first purchase, the brand-new lover must choose a scale. Every purchase made will be influenced by that decision due to the fact that locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories should be at the exact same scale; otherwise, the train won't work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do collect several scales, however handling an additional scale is essentially like handling an extra hobby. The standard and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular alternatives include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1). As soon as scale is identified, the next step is to choose a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Buying the locomotive is a huge choice that will have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an option, this is the time to do it. Cheap locomotives are more difficulty than they deserve and will substantially extend the learning curve. When it comes to complexity, the majority of newbies will rapidly grow out of a novice level locomotive and regret not having purchased the more advanced intermediate model.
