Product Description

Model train collecting can be fun and exciting, while also allowing you to work with your hands and your mind. Exercise your imagination and express yourself in your own unique way!

I am sure at some point in your life you've seen one of those little model trains setup on their tiny little tracks and realistic looking landscape that makes it look so alive and real.

Have you ever dreamed about maybe having one of those little train sets for yourself?

Some people may have the mistaken impression that these little model trains are just for kids, but on the contrary it's the adults that love collecting them and running them around the tracks. You see model trains are different than those little toy trains you buy for the kids to play with.

These model trains are not cheap and prices can range from about $20 and go up into the hundreds or thousands of dollars each. They also need to be handled with care if you want them to retain their value.

Did you know that people have been collecting model trains since the 1800's and there are even national organizations for trains? Yes it's true, and they also have support groups so other model train collectors can all get together and talk about their trains and maybe what they've added to their collection since the last meeting.

Why do people want to get into model train collecting? There can be many reasons why people want to choose this as a hobby.

Some people find it helps them to relax by having something to do that allows them to be creative and use their imagination as they lay out the landscaping. It can be something the whole family can participate in as you build your little train community.

Just about everyone enjoys seeing those little trains going down the tracks thru all the scenic wonders you've created! Many people find it gives them a sense of peace and enjoyment.

The details on these little scale models are quite exquisite as they capture the way a train really looks but just a smaller version of it.

People young and old get a kick out of watching those tiny little wheels and other mechanical parts working just like the real thing. Some of them will even blow steam just like a real train does!

Did you know there are even different ways these little trains are powered? Some by batteries, some by electricity and even some by remote control.

Just imagine having the information you need to get started with model train collecting, right at your fingertips! Well, it's all right here in this handy little guide.

Just take a look at some of what's covered in this e-book.

This App is not very well written by someone who apparently did some research on model trains but had very little, if any, personal experience with them. I read the entire ebook on model train collecting and found the information so basic as to be virtually unusable for anyone who has ever actually collected model trains though it might have some use for one who was considering getting involved in model railroading. In its list of major model train manufacturers, it failed to include Bachmann which is a major manufacturer though there was a minor reference to some individual trains manufactured by Bachmann. As it happens, most of my fairly large collection of trains were made by Bachman because they are relatively low cost, reliable and fairly realistic...especially when viewed from he normal distances from which people watch model railroads.

Though it's presented as a global reference to model train collecting, it has a very definite UK much so that it may have almost no value for collectors in other areas though some of the references are to model train collecting in other countries including the U.S., Canada, France, Germany and Australia.

Probably the best part of this App is its link to working model train layouts presented on YouTube videos. Though one does not need this App to access YouTube, the direct links are helpful and the videos that I looked at are quite good. YouTube has an extensive collection of model train videos which are worth a look for someone considering model train collecting.

There are inks to some other ebooks including one on toy collecting and another on getting involved in Green energy, neither of which interest me.

I guess in the final analysis, one must ask the question as to whether it was worth one's time to download and review the information presented. My answer is a solid "no>'

I intend to delete this App from my Kindle but because I am an experienced model train collector and don't need the very basic information presented.
