How to choose the Right Model Train Set



Model train sets are amazing and complex toys that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.
Many people have great childhood memories of train sets and want to share those nostalgic experience with their kids.
But before you rush out and spend a lot of money on such a big investment, make sure that you think about the following;
Space
How much room do you have at home to set up a train set. The answer to this should affect the scale size that you buy, as there's no point getting an elaborate train layout that you then have to squash up or can't even set up properly.
Scale
The scale for a train set refers to the amount the model train has been 'scaled down' from a real train ie 1/45 of the real thing.
The really small sets can be very intricate and cute but if you have bigger fingers, are clumsy or want it for younger kids then you should consider getting a larger scale set.
Model Trains vs Toy Trains
It's easy to be confused but in general toy trains are cheaper and larger toys that young kids play with ie chunky wooden sets whereas model trains are replicas of real trains and focus on the small details. This makes them more expensive and also more delicate.
The best way to get started is to first figure out how much space you have. Then decide what kind of trains you like and how much money you have to spend.
Enjoy!

I have a Bachmann electric train and the engine seems to be frozen. I have verified their is power to the tracks. What do I do?


An electric train is simply a DC motor and a gearbox. Take the body off and check the motor for continuity. If it checks okay, carefully, tourn the motor. You might have a broken gear in the gearbox. A good hobby shop should be able to find parts or, you can get them online.
