All Aboard! A Comprehensive Introduction To Model Trains
Being too Ambitious too Soon
Having high hope and aspirations as a train modeler is great and
highly encouraged. However, if your ambition exceeds your skill
level you may run into some problems.
One of the main problems that many beginners face is trying too
much too soon. They build a massive work bench and have plans to
build a glorious model train display similar to one they saw in a
magazine or museum. The thing they're forgetting is that huge
displays like that can take months or even years to complete.
This becomes problematic due to the fact that most beginners want
to see results as quickly as possible and haven't developed the
sense of patience that is necessary to build a model train display
that's large and complex. Understandably, this can lead to
frustration and disinterest as the huge work bench constantly
The problem of being overly ambitious is best handled by starting
small. When you're just starting out don't try and build the
greatest train display in the world just yet. Start by creating a
small display that is simplistic yet highly detailed and you'll have
something you can be proud of in no time!
