Do you travel to work by train regularly? Are you one of those who always have nostalgic feelings whilst traveling, even though you are seeing the same things through your window each day? You are never bored and you always enjoy the view. Perhaps you are bored over weekends after you have had a good rest. Let your mind unwind and preoccupy itself at the same time by taking up a hobby. But which one? Many gentlemen and ladies find it difficult to decide sometimes mainly due to the prices involved in starting up a hobby.
Well, that is a fair concern, because the best hobby practitioners have all made sacrifices and utilized a lot of resources to build up the perfect hobby craft (and reputation). And they all say that it is always worth the while. Say now, you are traveling to and from work every day by train. You enjoy these daily, nostalgic trips so much; you may as well consider this enjoyment to be the early shoots of a promising hobby.
Many men have dreamed of this. Perhaps some of them were fortunate enough to be gifted with a wooden ‘choo-choo’ train when they were young. But somewhere down the tracks, they gave up on the train set. There is nothing childish about powering your own train set at home. Many grown men continue to build their rail empire with the use of a consummate dcc command station. After attending conventions and learning from the legends how it is all done, or can be built up over time, they are now controlling whole cities.
At a glance, it does appear to be an expensive hobby, but its cost pales once the passion leaves the station.
