Before the very first purchase, the new lover needs to choose a scale. Every purchase made will be affected by that choice since locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories should be at the very same scale; otherwise, the train won't work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do collect several scales, but taking on an additional scale is essentially like taking on an extra 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). When scale is figured out, the next step is to pick a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Purchasing 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 trouble than they're worth and will substantially extend the learning curve. When it comes to complexity, many newbies will swiftly grow out of a novice level locomotive and remorse not having purchased the advanced intermediate model.
