Description

There's a nostalgia associated with model trains and railroading -- even if it's unspoken. Railroads take us back to an
earlier era. A more basic time. When spending a week or more on a train was seen as a luxury -- an event in itself --
not at as merely a mode of transportation.

You've probably already scouted some model railroad shows. You've no doubt recognized the camaraderie and the passion
these folks have. And yes, you're interested in becoming a part of that.

"The Wonderful World of Model Trains" will help you do just that! It's a comprehensive guide to model railroading
written for someone who is new to this hobby, starting with some basic "train knowledge" & terminologies, and continuing
on to the more detailed aspects of the hobby.

And yes, this hobby can indeed get quite detailed. And that tends to be intimidating to some people. The beauty of
this hobby is that you can get involved at just the level you care too. You'll discover that every model railroader is
in it for the love of the trains and the history. The vast majority of us are not out to make a fast buck from our
interests.
