Check out our a large variety of new mbuy now mantua brass trains and accessories for the more mature train collectors as well for very first time purchasers.

Before the very first purchase, the new enthusiast must choose a scale. Every purchase made will be impacted by that choice since 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 multiple scales, but taking on an added scale is basically like handling an additional pastime. The conventional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular choices include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1). Gathering model trains is an organic experience, and enthusiasts need to embrace that. Even the enthusiast who likes structure will find that their order commonly takes a backseat to the natural advancement of a specific train, track, or landscape. Commonly, the impulse for the brand-new collector is to be ambitious and plan a vast landscape and numerous railroad lines. Typically, however, this is an error because the model train collector's interests and vision will progress too. The much better method is to plan in small increments, and afterwards have each new phase creatively include the layers that came before it.
