I could use some help. I've always turned to enthusiast newsgroups for
advice and never been steered wrong, unlike the stuff that's out there on
Anyway, my father-in-law wants to build a pretty big model railroad for his
three grandsons. He's envisioning three separate sets on one large
landscape, say 8x10 or larger. He already has a small Lionel set so he wants
to go that route if possible.
1. Could someone recommend a bid train/hobby store in the NYC area?
2. Can someone recommend how to get started? My F.I.L. is a great craftsman,
and wouldn't have any problems following plans. But where can he get good
plans and a materials list?
Any other helpful advice would be appreciated.
Thanks a ton for your time,
