Model Railroad Club
Playing with TrainsNostalgia for the Lost Age of Rail Travel
Welcome to Fun in all kinds of ways!
So who are model railroaders? They come from all walks of life and enjoy the hobby in different ways.
There are model railroaders who rarely, if ever, build a model. They enjoy reading about the hobby and dream about the model railroad they’re going to build “someday.” We call these enthusiasts “armchair modelers.”
Other hobbyists build detailed models of locomotives or cars. Some focus on building structures and scenery. For them, model railroading is a form of sculpture. Then there are those who focus on mechanical and electrical things to the point that they never build scenery.
The majority of model railroaders find the greatest enjoyment in combining all these approaches, tailoring the hobby to suit their interests. It’s a serious and enjoyable hobby.
