The 7 Model Train Mistakes That Almost Every Beginner Makes And How To Avoid Them!

model train mistakes

Hi, my name is Dan Morgan, and I am about to reveal the top 7 model train mistakes almost all beginners make.

I surveyed more than 5,000 readers and was astounded to hear how some of these mistakes had cost the beginners hundreds of dollars and hours of wasted time. Here they are…

Mistake # 1 – Too much eagerness and too little patience

Mistake # 2 – Trying to grow a model train starter set into your dream model train layout

Mistake # 3 – Confusing scale and gauge

Mistake # 4 – Choosing the wrong scale

Mistake # 5 – Steep gradients and tight curves

Mistake # 6 – Going too big too quickly

Mistake # 7 – Electrically underrating your layout

I had no idea so many people made these mistakes and how much wasted money and time was involved. So, to avoid this happening to you I have written a downloadable report which goes into great detail. Click here to get your free copy of my special report “7 model train mistakes that almost every beginner makes and how to avoid them!”

Model railroading has been branded as an expensive hobby and now I see why. These mistakes are the main reason and by me providing this free report to you, my hope is that you can avoid them.

I would love to hear your thoughts…

Dan Morgan

Dan Morgan fell in love with model trains at the age of six when he visited an NMRA Convention in Seattle with his father. Forty two years later, his passion remains just as strong. After achieving a successful career in architecture, Dan’s particular interest is within layouts and buildings. With a wealth of knowledge on the subject, Dan loves nothing more than sharing this with others and is delighted in the forum of members who are brought together over the hobby they have in common. Dan lives with his wife Helen in Washington. As a professional painter, Helen has learnt through Dan about Model Trains and they now enjoy working on projects together. The only member of the family who isn’t allowed to join in is their over-enthusiastic Labrador called William who has been strictly banned from the workshop! You can find Dan on Google here!

    I am interested in one eigth scale riding scale trains and in building a railroad with 3000 feet of track. I have 20 acres with an abandoned water canal which will make a perfect bed for the ballast. Does your group work at this scale of who does? I’m in N. Cal. Grass Valley 45mi north of Sacramento.I heard their is a large RR near here in Nevada City but can’t find it.
    Thank You for your help,
    Ken Mason

    Found your newsletter on a British model railway forum.
    It has some interesting stuff in it but no British items?
    I found the site difficult to navigate and links didn’t send me were I thought they would.
    It’s nice that it free!
