Prior to the first purchase, the brand-new enthusiast must settle on a scale. Every purchase made will be affected by that decision due to the fact that locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories must be at the exact same scale; otherwise, the train will not work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do collect multiple scales, but taking on an additional scale is basically like taking on an added hobby. The conventional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which runs at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular alternatives consist of O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1). Once scale is figured out, the next step is to choose a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Buying the locomotive is a big decision that will certainly have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an alternative, this is the time to do it. Inexpensive locomotives are more difficulty than they deserve and will substantially extend the learning curve. When it comes to intricacy, many newbies will rapidly outgrow a newbie level locomotive and remorse not having purchased the more advanced intermediate model.
