kit gauge

Check out our a big variety of kit gauge trains and accessories for the more mature train collectors as well for very first time purchasers.

Before the very first purchase, the brand-new enthusiast needs to choose a scale. Every purchase made will be impacted by that choice because locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories have to be at the same scale; otherwise, the train won't work or look right. Some railroad model lovers do collect multiple scales, however handling an added scale is essentially like handling an added pastime. The standard and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which runs at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular options include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1). Once scale is identified, the next step is to pick a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Buying the locomotive is a big decision that will have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an alternative, this is the time to do it. Low-cost locomotives are more difficulty than they're worth and will considerably extend the learning curve. When it comes to complexity, the majority of newbies will rapidly outgrow a beginner level locomotive and remorse not having actually purchased the more advanced intermediate model.
