my son absolutely loves trains. He has all different types of wooden trains, battery operated trains, and a train that circles our Christmas tree.
Im thinking about getting him an electric train for Christmas. I found a layout for sale on Craigslist that’s for a model N. The layout is 3ft x 5ft.
My wife is concerned he is too young. Any thoughts or ideas based off previous experience?
I am pleased that there are youngsters that like trains.
For a little guy, maybe a Thomas the Tank train set would suit him better. Just an opinion. N scale is so small and the cars and engine will likely derail more often than larger trains due to N having less weight.
My dad bought me a Lionel set when I was about 5. I still have it (and much more).
The best advise is to have fun.
I am interested in finding or joining an O gauge community or club in the Metro East area of St. Louis, Mo.
