I always purchase your fine N scale cars at the shows. Unfortunately, I’m really good at picking the ones with the warped trucks….I spoke to and even showed the young man there in Indy the trucks and the warping from the stock there. I still purchased two more, both with bad trucks. I gave the young man my name and he said I would get replacements in the mail to me…..Well???? Of the six cars I have purchased, I still have four sets of the trucks if you need to see what I am talking about…..Thanks

This story reminded me of how I got started building model trains many years ago. It was rough at first, I have to admit. I would get caught up surfing the Internet for ours on end for answers or would spend too much time going through the painful process of dealing with inexperienced sales people at my local hobby shop. But somehow I learned to create my own detailed model train layouts without having a big budget or a lot of space, even though I wasn’t good with my hands nor was I an electrician, a carpenter, or an artist. Now me and my two boys spend all our free time with this wonderful hobby. I’m glad that we are having fun together and they are doing something educational with their time. By the way, if you’re interested in learning about model trains quickly, you might want to check out this great article, which will save you tons of time and money and keep you from making a lot of easily avoidable mistakes:
Hope it helps anyone reading this!
