lionel scale

Check out our a large variety of lionel scale trains and accessories for the more fully grown train collectors as well for very first time buyers.

Collecting model trains is an organic experience, and hobbyists must welcome that. Even the enthusiast who chooses structure will find that their order often takes a backseat to the natural development of a particular train, track, or landscape. Frequently, the instinct for the brand-new collector is to be enthusiastic and prepare a vast landscape and numerous railroad lines. Generally, however, this is a mistake given that the model train collector's interests and vision will progress too. The better strategy is to plan in small increments, and then have each brand-new stage artistically integrate the layers that came prior to it. As soon as scale is figured out, the next step is to select a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Buying the locomotive is a huge decision that will have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is a choice, this is the time to do it. Inexpensive locomotives are more problem than they're worth and will significantly extend the knowing curve. As for complexity, most newbies will quickly grow out of a newbie level locomotive and remorse not having bought the more advanced intermediate model.
