Model Train Sets


Model train sets are normally everything you need for a complete setup. This includes the engine, rail cars, track, power supply, and a controller. These sets also contain detailed instructions on how to set up the set.

Most model train sets are equipped for a relatively simple oval track layout. This allows for a simple setup which can then be easily customized and expanded as desired.

There are many choices when it comes to model train sets. The most important choice is the type of gauge. Train sets are normally available in almost every gauge.

Model Train Sets

The largest gauge is the O gauge. These trains are build to a scale of ¼” equals 1 foot. If you have limited space, this is not the type for you. The most popular standard is the HO gauge. These trains are about half the size of the O gauge and are therefore much more flexible in terms of layout and implementation.

You will find a great deal of choice in model train sets in this gauge. This a very good choice because it has the greatest variety of products. You can start out with a relatively simple set and then expand to you as desired.

In choosing a model train set, you also want to make sure that the controller system is easily expandable. Most trains are now controlled with digital controllers as they provide the greatest degree of control and flexibility. They are especially convenient when adding more trains.

A digital controller enables easy control of the trains speed, etc. These controllers also allow you to turn the engine lights on and off.

Some of the most popular manufacturers of HO model train sets includes Bachmann, Athearn, and Life Like Trains. The one thing to keep in mind is that some sets are designed for the new model train hobbyist and have components which are easy to assemble. However these parts may not be compatible if you want to expand your set at a later point.

So if you intend to eventually expand your layout, consider purchasing a set with a popular gauge standard and which has tracks and power components are easily expandable. In this way, you can begin with a simple setup but have the flexibility to expand your set and its many options at a later time.
