For generations, children and adults alike have enjoyed everything from simply playing with trains to collecting, designing and building model railways. Model Trains have long been popular, among modelers and collectors in a wide variety of different types and sizes.
Model trains are available from tiny full-scale indoor sets to backyard railroads. These can range from very small; highly detailed models suited to enthusiast modelers, to large, durable trains which are mostly suited for outdoor use.
The hobby ranges from the possession of a simple train set to spending hours and large sums of money on a large and exacting model of a railroad and the scenery through which it passes, called a “layout”. Modelers may also collect model trains, build landscapes, structures, bridges and buildings for the trains to pass through. They may also operate their own railroad in miniature or belong to a model railway club. For some modelers, the goal of building a layout is to eventually run it as if it were a real railroad.
Model train engines and control systems also vary widely, from electric cars to steam powered to gas-electric model train locomotives that closely simulate the engines of modern trains. One of the most important characteristics of a model train is the scale of a model. This can have an impact on the accessories available for the model, as well as where it should be used. There are a number of commonly available scales for model trains such as Z scale, N scale, O scale and HO scale.
Different power sources are also available depending on the gauge chosen and layout location, which include DC electric, AC electric, Live steam, battery or gasoline engine power.
Accessories available to the modeler vary widely, including track, scenery, freight cars or passenger cars
